The profession of ITVoices of computing

Peter J. Denning
2008 Communications of the ACM  
The choir of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists who make up the bulk of our field better represents computing than the solo voice of the programmer.  ...  Voices of Computing (August 2008) The choir of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists who make up the bulk of our field better represents computing than the solo voice of the programmer.  ...  I love finding ways to apply algorithms I know to solve problems that folks didn't realize could be solved. It's such a powerful way to solve problems. All you have to do is think algorithms and-poof!  ...

Things they would not teach me of in college

Eric Brechner
2003 Companion of the 18th annual ACM SIGPLAN conference on Object-oriented programming, systems, languages, and applications - OOPSLA '03  
Current college hires who join Microsoft development teams only know a small fraction of their jobs and cannot be trusted to write new code until they have received months of in-depth training.  ...  The cause of this growing gap is a fundamental shift in the software industry, which now demands higher quality and greater attention to customer needs.  ...  Of course, these are precisely the dynamics of commercial software projects. People who you hope will buy your software never really know what they want until you give it to them.  ...

Never occurred to us. NORBERG: It didn't occur to me either. I had a similar sort of path. McCRACKEN: Well, that's good to know.  ...  Where do you want to pick up next? NORBERG: When you went to high school. Let's pick up there.  ...  I didn't agree with everything she wanted to do, and I mostly didn't agree with her style of doing it, but people and a style I don't agree with are often in the right, you know.  ...

Talk to me

Alan S. Brown
2016 Mechanical engineering (New York, N.Y. 1919)  
Google and other online companies know a great deal about those of us who use their search engine, email, maps, calendar, news, travel sites, and other services.  ...  So when we speak Hello Siri. to a computer, we treat it as another human being.
