IEEE Computer Society Introduces Multimedia Version of IEEE Software Magazine

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 10 January, 2013 – IEEE Computer Society this year is offering a multimedia version of IEEE Software, its second-largest magazine, to enable software researchers and practitioners access to audio, video, and other formats to augment the magazine's high-quality articles.
 
The multimedia, available from IEEE Software's print and digital formats, clarifies key concepts and will add another dimension to the reader experience. The digital issue is downloadable, and includes a clickable table of contents and article reference links. It can be read on a wide variety of devices and archived for easy access to past issues. In the print format, icons alert readers when multimedia is available, and guide them to a webpage that provides links and further information.
 
"We invite those in the software community to try IEEE Software's new multimedia edition to deepen their reading experience and understanding of the concepts being discussed," said Forrest Shull, editor in chief of IEEE Software. "We expect that the multimedia will make the magazine even more useful to software researchers and practitioners."
 
Offering pioneering ideas, expert analyses, and thoughtful insights for software professionals who need to keep up with rapid technology change, IEEE Software is the authority on translating software theory into practice. An IEEE Software iPad app is expected to be introduced next month.
 
In 2013's first issue, IEEE Software discusses how to use social networking to bridge software communities. Multimedia highlights include:
  • Grady Booch's audio recording of his On Computing column, discussing why the public should know about computing technology;
  • Shull's interview with Ben Shneiderman about the Nation of Neighbors, a program that facilitates real-time collaboration in more than 400 neighborhood communities across the United States; 
  • Shull's interview with Anne Rose about the International Children's Digital Library, an impassioned network of more than 4,000 volunteers worldwide;
  • A multimedia illustration of the Airbus Concept Cabin to demonstrate the future of flight from the passenger's perspective; 
  • Joel Spolsky's discussion of the structure, software, technology, and culture of Stack Exchange;
  • Matthew McCullough and Tim Berglun's demonstration of how to leverage Git's powerful yet underused advanced features;
  • Minnesota CIO Thomas Baden's presentation on working on the TopCoder Platform; and
  • Diomidis Spinellis's discussion of why declarative code is easier to understand, modify, and maintain. 
Subscribe to IEEE Software to make sure you don't miss a single multimedia-rich issue. Several subscription options are available, from a one-year digital subscription for $19.95 to a one-year print member subscription for $59. You can also subscribe to the IEEE Computer Society YouTube channel for free to receive updates when new IEEE Software videos are added.
