A Programmer's Tale chronicles the 35-year career of a computer programmer/software engineer. Beginning when mainstream computing was in its infancy and ending when the dot-com/telecom bubble burst, it looks at the many changes that took place in the software industry, including advances made in software methodology, productivity, and social changes in the workplace. It recounts each of the author's software projects with a goal of sharing lessons learned and examines the reasons for the more significant successes and failures encountered along the way. And it takes a detailed look at what happens when a company's short-term goals are allowed to trump good software management and development practices. An interesting read for anyone involved in the world of software development or thinking about entering this fascinating and highly rewarding career field.
