DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Mary Shaw talks about how far software engineering has come since the 1960s. She observes it is now passing from craft to commercial practice, having the potential to become a true engineering discipline. She shows how improvements in abstraction capabilities have helped the discipline mature. Although the scientific basis required for an engineering discipline has not yet been sufficiently developed, the rate of progress is encouraging."
