This work lays the foundation for a human-centric study of software design. It compiles highly interdisciplinary contributions that together provide a broad and deep account of software designers in action. By studying the designers in practice, the book builds a real understanding of how software designers actually work. It also proposes a research agenda for the future, enabling software designers to be better supported in their work and helping newcomers become effective software designers.
