My intent in this commentary was not to describe every paper related to software development in the 38-year publication history of the Journal, nor to claim that they were all significant. There are many more papers that fit in the sequences described. There are also other important topics that have not been mentioned—for example, the papers describing the methodologies and economic benefits of software reuse. This journal does represent the ebb and flow of ideas as practiced by dedicated professionals whose careers are devoted to the effective and efficient production of software. Along the way it recorded key turning-point ideas that were expanded and modified and that still play a crucial role in how we build software.
