"An excellent sourcebook for student project work in computing." (Prof Darren Dalcher, Middlesex University) "Contains everything that a student needs to know in order to successfully complete an academic computing project for their degree." (Peter Morris, University of Greenwich) Undertaking a project is a key component of nearly all computing/information systems degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Projects in Computing and Information Systems covers the four key aspects of project work (planning, conducting, presenting and taking the project further) in chronological fashion, and provides the reader with the skills to excel in the following essential areas: writing proposals; surveying literature; project management; time management; managing risk; team working; software development; documenting software; report writing; effective presentation. The AUTHOR uses a number of real-life case studies to pass on the experiences of past student projects in order that the reader gets a genuine understanding of how to avoid pitfalls and ensure best practice throughout their own projects. This book is the essential guide for any student undertaking a computing/IS project, and will give them everything they need to achieve outstanding results. Christian Dawson is currently a lecturer at Loughborough University.
