Over the last 3 a long time, software program engineers have derived a gradually higher knowing of the features of complexity in software program. it's now broadly recognized thatinteraction is one of the most crucial unmarried char- teristic of complicated software program. software program architectures that include many dyna- cally interacting elements, each one with their very own thread of keep watch over, and eng- ing in complicated coordination protocols, are usually orders of value extra complicated to properly and e?

And as one goes on in life one tends to trade in generality for specialty. And again, education is key. I find education an important theme throughout my life. True, I loved being a student, but I find myself constantly, in the course of my own work for companies, as well as when I was a professor earlier in my career, that the key thing was constantly to be looking up new information to find out what other people are doing. Go to conferences; read. And now I add to that, search the web. Sometimes I get into AltaVista, pick a keyword that's related to whatever it is I ' m doing, and do a big search and see what's out there.

Wulf: I would, first of all, repeat the advice I gave to the undergraduate, and add to that that the problems to be solved are large. Sometimes programming languages may be a way of codifying how to solve those larger problems, but don't get trapped into thinking that programming languages, by themselves, independently, are a research problem. They're only a means to an end. our undergraduates and graduates understood what I said to them, I think they'd make better industrial employees. The real trick for them is understanding customer value, and understanding that when you build a system, you build a system to do what your customer needs.

Dennis has been an active faculty member in the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since 1958, and is now Professor Emeritus of Computer Science and Engineering. In 1963 Prof. Dennis formed the Computation Structures Group (CSG) in the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science and led the formulation of the dataflow model of computation that has influenced computer architecture projects throughout the world. The CSG, in cooperation with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) created the Val programming language in 1978.
