Defining Professionalism for Software Engineers
Philip Greenspun is unique among those who write about programming. He doesn’t confine himself to writing about technical topics.
In Redefining Professionalism for Software Engineers he wrote about the professionalism as applied to Software Engineers.
The history of this article is interesting - it first appeared in ArsDigita Systems Journal, an ambitious (but failed) project at Greenspun’s ambitious (and also failed) company. At some point it must have been considered too controversial since it has been unlinked from ASJ’s index.
Today ArsDigita and ASJ is gone but we can still enjoy it thanks to the wonderful web archive.
