NATO Software Engineering Conference 1968

Apparently, all the problems and proposed solutions (aka Methodologies) that we discuss today were discussed more than 30 years ago, at the NATO Software Engineering Conference 1968. The proceedings of the conference did not feature one paper that was presented—Masterpiece Engineering—because it was not serious enough.

It’s a pretty enlightening “paper”, and—after 30 odd years—a fresh perspective on that problems of the software “engineering”.

(Got to this via the excellent book “Dreaming in Code” by Scott Rosenberg.)
