Evolution of this book
This course book has been contributed by the Open University Netherlands (OUNL). The first edition of this book was written by Sylvia Stuurman and Ella Roubtsova in 2007 as an OUNL course book based on lectures given by Lex Bijlsma in the Software Technology master programme of Utrecht University. These lectures in turn owed much to an earlier version by Gert Florijn. A second edition, with contributions from Bastiaan Heeren, was published in 2009. The FTA version was updated and rewritten by Sylvia Stuurman in 2011.
