Overview

This book, coming with four DVDs, presents epochal works of 16 of the most influential software pioneers. Seminal historical papers, going back as far as to the 1950s, are complemented by new papers especially written by the software pioneers for inclusion in this book and by short biographical notes. The volume is based on a conference where the pioneers met and presented their assessment of the past, new ideas, and visions for the future. The volume editors coherently integrated the historical contributions with current aspects and future perspectives. The four DVDs included are an important supplement to the book providing more than 12 hours of video documentation. Besides a representative overview drawing together the highlights of the presentations, the video recording of each pioneer's talk together with the transparencies used is included. Together, the book and the four DVDs constitute a unique and major contribution to the history of software engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Software Pioneers documents the proceedings of a celebration of software engineering held in Bonn, Germany, in June 2001. … As a celebration of software engineering the book works well. It is fairly priced, and the contributions are mostly original, readable and insightful. It is beautifully produced on blued paper, lending a uniformity to the varied typefaces of the facsimile reproductions of historical documents." (Martin Campbell-Kelly, Times Higher Education Supplement, February, 2003)

"This book, coming with four DVDs, presents epochal works of 16 of the most influential software pioneers. … The volume editors coherently integrated the historical contributions with current aspects and future perspectives. … Together, the book and the four DVDs constitute a unique and major contribution to the history of software engineering." (www.amazon.de, December, 2002)

“This book is based on a conference that took place in 2001 … . The speakers at the event … included many of the most legendary names in the history of software development who were asked to reflect on their own pioneering contributions to software engineering in the 20th century. … each of them address the conference with the added benefit of being able to re-read their lectures. This is a ‘must have’ resource for anyone … interested in the history of computing.” (Sue Gee, I Programmer, February, 2009)
