A Brief History of Software Development

“A Brief History of Software Development” was published this last July. In this post we took a bird’s eye view of the origins of software and how it developed throughout the last century. Some of the highlights include:

Humble Origins: The origins of software development were not glamorous by any means, but that doesn’t make them any less profound. Basic computers were being developed as early as the 1820s, and the “Difference Machine” changed it everything.

World War II: Modern software, as we understand it, really got rolling during World War II as means of handling complex tactical issues.

50s and 60s: Standardized programming emerged in the 1950s and continued to be developed at a lightning pace in the 1960s.
