Goodnight and thank you, Fred Brooks

Post by FourthWorld » Sun Nov 20, 2022 6:12 pm

I just learned that Fred Brooks (author of The Mythical Man Month) passed away on Nov 17, after a lifetime of trying to bring sanity to software development schedules.

"Nine women can't make a baby in one month."

The world is a better place for his efforts.

Thanks for posting about Fred Brooks. I've added his book to reading list, just waiting for Abe Books to find a copy here in the U.K.
best wishes
