Agile software development is the most popular methodology used in today’s software engineering. Agility in software development does not mean the resignation to the accuracy and quality of meeting user requirements. However, it is apparent that the tasks of requirements engineering are taken lightly or often overlooked in agile projects due to pro...

Interslavic language is an artificially created zonal language designed to facilitate communication between the Slavic and also between Slavic and non-Slavic nations. This article describes the project itself, its further development, and selected outputs having the cultural potential to be a lingua-franca of the Central and Eastern Europe. A langu...

Full-text available
This article deals with an original view on the Ambler’s approach to the object-oriented class normalisation from the perspective of conceptual modelling. This idea gives the possibility of using the object-oriented class normalisation rules not only for the design of composition structure of classes but also for the inheritance and inheritance-lik...

Article
Full-text available
The development of business information systems has the communication gap that exists between business and software experts, because they live in their own well-defined and complex cultures. One place where this gap manifests itself is in the constant failure of software developers to fully capture the system requirements. Second example is the ina...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The object-oriented approach usually does not follow any formal design process and is mostly ad hoc in real software development. This makes it more of an art than a science. The quality of the resultant design therefore depends to a large extent on the skills of the individual designer and cannot be evaluated easily. In this paper we present an ap...
