Software Engineering Notes

What is Brooks Law?
Adding more programmers to a late project may make it later.

Brooks has observed that the number of communication paths among programmers grows as n(n-1)/2 , where 'n' is the number of programmers on a project team. Thus increasing the number of team members from three to four to five increases the number of communication paths from three to six to ten.
