This chapter is from the book

Summary

This prelude showed the evolution and convergence of many fields that would come together to create modern computers and software. Mathematics, data storage and retrieval, communication methods, and software itself would come together to create the modern era of personal software and personal computing.

Later chapters in this book discuss the evolution of software engineering from the earliest dreams of visionaries in the 1930s through the growth of the largest and wealthiest companies in human history by the end of the 20th century.
