About the Book

This upcoming book, coming in September 2017, looks at problems caused by wrong assumptions in computer systems, when they face the hard, unforgiving punch of reality.

You’ll read stories on what happens to people whose last name makes them invisible to computers, how to make time flow in the opposite direction and how a default password once caused a zombie apocalypse. People involved with business analysis will get nice tips on typical blind-spots and aspects they should discuss with business stakeholders. People involved in developing software will learn how to avoid common mistakes, how to create better models and prevent silly problems caused by wrong assumptions. People involved in testing will learn how to create better testing heuristics. And you’ll have quite a few laughs.
