Item description for Software Pioneers by Manfred Broy...

This book, coming with four DVDs, presents epochal works of 16 of the most influential software pioneers. Seminal historical papers, going back as far as to the 1950s, are complemented by new papers especially written by the software pioneers for inclusion in this book and by short biographical notes. The volume is based on a conference where the pioneers met and presented their assessment of the past, new ideas, and visions for the future. The volume editors coherently integrated the historical contributions with current aspects and future perspectives. The four DVDs included are an important supplement to the book providing more than 12 hours of video documentation. Besides a representative overview drawing together the highlights of the presentations, the video recording of each pioneer's talk together with the transparencies used is included. Together, the book and the four DVDs constitute a unique and major contribution to the history of software engineering.

Reviews - What do customers think about Software Pioneers?

Great Book -- Useless DVDs  Apr 21, 2004
The DVDs that accompany the book can be read ONLY with the Windows software on the discs. Beyond the introductory music and the table of contents, nothing else can be viewed on a non-Windows PC or a DVD player. I suggest that the DVDs be treated as an extra only valuable to those with Windows boxes. I found this most unfortunate and makes the DVDs useless to me.

The book, on the other hand, is a collection of wonderful seminal articles with accompanying expositions. If you are a stranger to the articles, I suggest reading them (and re-reading them on a regular basis). They have not lost their freshness over the years. I would have wanted to have seen some of these authors talking (as some, such as Dijkstra, are no longer with us). If the DVDs could be read in regular players, I would have awarded the book 5 stars.
