Doug Rosenberg

Doug Rosenberg is founder and president of ICONIX Software Engineering, Inc. (www.iconixsw.com). Doug spent the first 15 years of his career writing code for a living before moving on to managing programmers, developing software design tools, and teaching object-oriented analysis and design.

Doug has been providing system development tools and training for nearly two decades, with particular emphasis on object-oriented methods. He developed a unified Booch/Rumbaugh/Jacobson design method in 1993 that preceded Rational's UML by several years. He has produced more than a dozen multimedia tutorials on object technology, including COMPREHENSIVE COM and Enterprise Architect for Power Users, and is the coauthor of Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML (Addison-Wesley, 1999) and Applying Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML (Addison-Wesley, 2001), both with Kendall Scott, as well as Extreme Programming Refactored: The Case Against XP (Apress, 2003) with Matt Stephens, Agile Development with ICONIX Process (Apress, 2005) with Matt Stephens and Mark Collins-Cope, and Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML: Theory and Practice with Matt Stephens (Apress, 2007).

A few years ago, Doug started a second business, an online travel website (www.VResorts.com) that features his virtual reality photography and some innovative mapping software.
