<p>Despite years of hard work and dedicated champions, software engineering?s educational and industrial constituents have not only failed to converge, the gap between them continues to grow.</p><p>Some disciplines, like circuit and genetic engineering, seem to evolve from theory to practice relatively responsibly. Software engineering, on the other hand, while not yet at the guillotine, has suffered a decided lack of direction. It may be time to storm the gates. It is never too late for a revolution, and circuit and genetic engineering provide two worthy role models.</p>
