About the Authors
  • Using CRC Cards, first published in 1995, is a comprehensive introduction to CRC (Class, Responsibility, Collaborator) cards. It includes a description of the cards and how they can be used in interactive sessions to develop an object-oriented model of an application. In this book, the author draws on her years of project experience to describe how CRC cards can contribute at all stages of the software lifecycle. It includes practical examples of how to utilize CRC cards in projects using either formal or informal development techniques. Using CRC Cards also provides a detailed look at how designs created with CRC cards can be mapped to an effective and efficient implementation in C++. Software analysts, designers and developers will find this a practical handbook for using CRC cards. It guides the transition to the object-oriented paradigm as well as providing a process for the development of object-oriented applications. In addition, software managers will gain an understanding of the object-oriented process supported by CRC cards.

    • A full discussion of the role and syntax of CRC cards
    • Example CRC card sessions for both analysis and design
    • Step-by-step guidance on moving a CRC card design to C++
