Datasaab Experiences and Reflections
Computer scientist and programmer Bud Lawson describes his experiences developing micro-programmed computer systems for Datasaab in Linköping, Sweden. Datasaab was the data processing division of the Saab aircraft company and an important shaper of Sweden's IT landscape for decades to come. The author's career also included years spent at IBM, Univac and others. His reflections in this account are centered on the origins and development of the 1972 Datasaab D23 mainframe computer.
