Presentation: The Evolution of Engineering Culture: Oh, the Places We've Been

The software industry once had to legitimize itself back in the day when hardware was king. This played out in academia with the advent of CS degrees and again in industry when IBM had to campaign heavily to change mindsets of bosses that keyboard weren't just for secretaries.

By studying the metamorphosis of programming from "a room full of inconsequential women working on math and logic problems" to "a room full of important men doing math and logic problems" we can understand the history and now of CS culture, gender relations, and tensions between hardware and software engineering without pointing fingers. 

Join us in a look back at where we've been. It might just help us guide where we're going!
