In the history of software engineering, we can discern some strong ideas and movements to promote them that lead the way of thinking how to do research and practice of software engineering for a certain period of time or still retain their impact now. They can be called software paradigms, following Thomas S. Kuhn's terminology. Paradigms are accompanied by methods that embody their core technologies. We particularly focus on modeling methods in the following tour of software paradigms and methods.
