Article: Software Project Management

At the beginning of my (still small) IT career, there was that time when I was in college. There, I learned several things with several professors, and one of those things I learned – and I liked quite a bit – was to make scientific articles in SBC¹ standards.

Since the first article elaborated I already felt a certain pleasure in doing them, because they helped me in some points:

Improvement in research – Because it is a scientific article, there would be a check of references. With this, a source of information could not be used that was not another article, publication or academic work. This helps to filter your sources of information well, with grater reliability in the subject you are looking for.

Coherence – Unfortunately one of the things I have always had difficulty with in academic work (ABNT² standards) is to maintain the structural coherence of the document. The document became great that at the time of elaborating the introduction and the conclusion, it ended up that the two things became equal. With scientific articles, it is clearer how to start the document and the own body becomes the conclusion of it.

Straight to the point – In an academic document it often takes a series of chapters that end up leaving the material more massive, extensive and tiring to read. Already in the article scientific purpose is addressed more directly and easily (even with all technical terms), thus making it easier to review by the author or others.

Below I am posting on the blog the first scientific article I wrote. It was an activity of the subject of Software Engineering, which I had in college. As my first, it is very simple and deals with the subject of Software Project Management. I focused on the life stages of the project, as well as on one’s knowledge fields.

The Beginning of Everything

Since my college years, I have a desire to always show what I’m doing. It’s like that feeling you had as a kid, if you beat a boss in the video game and run to your mother, shouting, “Look, Mom, look what I did!” However, since I’ve grown up and finished college, I do not feel like showing the bosses I’m defeating, but rather show what I’ve learned in this area of technology that I decided to follow.

The inspiration for creating this blog was in one of my classes in college, specifically in the field of software engineering. One of the best teachers I had, Rafael Groski¹, taught me so many new and different things that the desire to learn and use these things was only growing. And then came the idea of exposing these studies.

The mission I have is to help anyone who wants to learn more or get involved in a variety of technologies, whether students, professionals or curious.

I decided to open three initial categories that I will be feeding:

Let’s discuss: a space to talk about news and technologies, where I try to show my point of view of that subject and also get the point of view of who to be interested.

Recommended courses: Since I am an eternal student, I am always taking online courses on various subjects. Each month I will be recommending a course (usually from Udemy) that I have recently concluded, showing its positives and negatives.

Scientific articles: one of the best ways to study (for me) is to do scientific articles. Even if the purpose is not to publish them in specialized journals, it is a great way to learn more about the subject matter, all within the normalizations.

This is an experiment that I would love to grow and always be putting new ideas into it, so I am counting on you to also suggest topics or categories for this blog. Please contact me by tweets or email, it will be an honor to have a Feedback.
