Data Coupling, Ilities, and Software Design


I am currently reading "Software Design" by David Budgen and getting all sorts of insights into the field of software architecture, design, implementation, and management. My notes are filled with words that buzz around in my brain - including the ilities (quality factors like reliability, efficiency, maintainability, and usability). Which of course leads to a poem. Here's for Meena-beana. Sorry about the Heidegger non-sense ;)

ilities

modules B and C
communicate,
being functionally related,
by parameters

with no control

element.

stick cohesive
and switch conditional
on site

the strength of bond
not quantifiable,
systematically

but by invisible metric,
relativistic,
within the scope
of periphery

existing only by no
direct reference

yet, they persist,
B and C,
iterating through
encoded maybes

likelihoods stacked up
by high
desirability
