5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down!, 26 April 2002
This review is from: Go To: Superheroes Of Software Programming: Superheroes of Software Programming from Fortran to the Internet Age and Beyond (Paperback)
This book is fantastic. It explains software, from the first computers, where the hardware had to be physically modified for each computation, through FORTRAN, BASIC, the Internet, and finally C# and Microsoft's .NET. Every stage in the evolution of software development is explained by examining the people responsible, what they did and why they did it.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in software. This is the best book I have read on the history of software development; it delves in to the backgrounds of the people and organisations who led the industry in each new direction, rather than just focussing on the technical aspects of their work. The book is full of interesting, insightful and often humerous comments from many of the famous names in software development.
After reading this book I have a much greater understanding of the history of software development, and how it evolved in to where it is today.
