Is Software Development Art or Engineering
MAY 11, 2017
I started my career as a Software Engineer , writing Fortran 77 signal processing algorithms to find and track missile launchers in the middle eastern desert. This skill was an extension of the signal processing work I did as a grad student looking for information in the data stream of a particle accelerator. The PDP-15 was a machine that ran Fortran but also Focal, a language suitable for formula calculations needed for signal processing. Related articles.
