Why Computers Don't Work + other upcoming programs

From: Charles P.
Sent on: Friday, May 25, 2012 2:50 PM
Program, Saturday at 8:00 PM, includes powerpoint presentation:

Meetings # 3,170 - "Advances in the tools and technology for computer software development would lead us to expect that today's computerized systems are more reliable, easier to maintain, and cheaper to develop than computerized systems several decades ago. 
Alas, we're disappointed.  Typical computer programmers of today are actually less aware of enlightened good practices than their predecessors of the 1970s.  Conrad Weisert will illustrate common shortcomings of modern computer systems and explain how the business and academic environments inhibit progress toward higher software quality." 
College of Complexes, "The Playground for People Who Think" since 1951
