Should software engineers be licensed?

John C. Knight, Nancy G. Leveson
2002 Communications of the ACM  
There is ample evidence that defective software is a causal factor in many failures of safety-critical systems in a variety of application areas.  ...  Software in automobiles, for example, has been the cause of numerous recalls, and the public has been exposed to serious hazards as a result.  ...  Thus, the creation of a licensing examination as part of the licensing process would require agreement on the subject matter relevant to the practice of software engineering in the safety-critical systems  ...

A queer theory of software studies: software theories, queer studies

Daniel G. Cockayne, Lizzie Richardson
2017 Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography  
From the point of view of feminist and postcolonial critiques of science this of course is not a new question.  ...  Feminist and postcolonial critics of science seek to avoid such a conceptualization, that in their analysis amounts to the unacknowledged assumption that bodies are only white, male, heterosexual, and  ...

Falsificationism and Software Engineering

Yasuyuki KAGEYAMA
