Projects / ReadySET


ReadySET is a project to produce and maintain a library of reusable software engineering document templates. These templates provide a ready starting point for the documents used in software development projects. Using good templates can help developers work more quickly, and they help prompt discussion and avoid oversights. Key features include: high-quality outlines, sample text, and checklists, use of simple Web technologies (pure XHTML and CSS), and templates for many common software engineering documents.
