Comments

In her 1990 IEEE Software article “Prospects for an Engineering Discipline of Software” (Nov./Dec., pp. 15–24), Mary Shaw identified the key areas that the software development profession must address to become a true engineering discipline. That classic article made the magazine’s 25th- anniversary top picks list (Jan./Feb. 2009, pp. 9–11). Here, Mary reflects on the evolution of her thinking since the publication of “Prospects.” —Hakan Erdogmus, Editor in Chief
