Abstract

This seven-week long project looked at how real-life software engineers deal with the obsolescence of professional knowledge. We compared what effective methods practitioners in other fast-moving technical fields take in order to keep progressing. The project investigated what can be learned by software engineers both from other fields and from best practices within the field. The project team came up with recommendations for companies to adopt to help their software engineering employees stay up-to-date.
