Once upon a Time
By Grady Booch
 

In this Episode

The story of computing is the story of humanity. Civilization is filled with storytelling, which helps us understand our past, reconcile our present, and be intentional of our future. Similarly, as developers, we are the storytellers, using our software and our hardware as our brush and our canvas.

From IEEE Software’s Issue 6 – November/December 2016
