Charles Simonyi and Software

February 5th, 2007 · No Comments

Technology Review has an in-depth article on Charles Simonyi and his intentional programming company:

Whether in his Stanford University doctoral dissertation on a “meta-programming” approach to boosting programmer productivity, his career at Microsoft organizing legions of software developers and teaching them how to structure their code, or his planned voyage into Earth orbit this spring, moving beyond established ways of doing things has always been Simonyi’s method. Now he is plotting what he hopes will be his most vaulting meta-move of all. Simonyi believes he can solve a host of stubborn problems that have always plagued computers by offering everyone who uses them, and the coders who program them, a higher-order view of software.
