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


Not 100% software engineering, but definitely history and something that I found fascinating - The Cuckoo's Egg by Clifford Stoll (amazon.com/Cuckoos-Egg-Tracking-Co...). I read it when I was in my last year of highschool, and so when I started uni the next year I was fully primed to delve deep into how our Sun workstations worked, from OBP upwards. That also opened my eyes to Usenet - and I found the mailing list which amazon.com/UNIX-Haters-Handbook-UN... is based on.
