 Software as Science - Science as Software
Generously funded by industry and government, they have professional associations (ACM, IEEE Computer Society, BCS, etc.), journals, monographs, textbooks, and an elaborate reward structure.[8] Much of this growth rests on a claim to be pursuing a scientific enterprise, even as practitioners have debated among themselves just how scientific it is or should be.
We have the published versions of a succession of ACM curricula in computer science and responses to them.[23] I hope we also have the minutes of the meetings of the committees that wrote them, not to say copies of the exchanges that went on between meetings.
What the profession as a whole was trying to accomplish was happening in colleges and universities, as computer scientists sought to define a place for themselves in their institutions and to justify their recognition as distinct academic units on a par with those already established.
