re: What are the books about software engineering history that you have enjoyed most? VIEW POST


Masters of Doom is a great book, especially if you grew up during that time.

A really good book about software engineering history is "Dreaming in Code". It is suitable for both devs and non-devs. It was written by the founder of Salon, who didn't really know anything about software development when he started with this book. So besides it chronicling a big failure of a project, it also follows the author in understanding software development (and Open Source).
