ABSTRACT
<p>About 25 years ago, when the company I worked for was established as a 100-percent subsidiary, our parent mainframer passed onto us the maintenance of its obsolete operating systems. These programs were poorly structured and came with almost no documentation. We struggled to improve our situation with tools and reverse engineering, but despite our best efforts and the loss of many good people to burnout, we never completely unraveled the code.</p><p>Ian Gorton describes a career journey that began with a similar situation. But Gorton survived and moved on to work with and observe “real” programming practices in several companies. He describes how the “real”-programming profession evolved and expanded into the mainstream of the software industry.</p><p>— Tomoo Matsubara</p>
