Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley (CMU-SV) Software Management Professor Dr. Tony Wasserman will give a talk at the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) San Francisco Bay Area Professor Chapter on May 15, 2013 at 6:30 P.M. at HP Palo Alto. His talk, “How the Internet Transformed the Software Industry,” will touch upon the various impacts the growth of the Internet has had on creating new software businesses and processes.
The rise of the Internet has radically transformed the way that companies develop, distribute and market their products. For example, Internet-based tools have increased the ease of collaboration, open source software is readily available to developers and product releases over the Internet have increased the efficiency while lowering the cost of selling products. Dr. Wasserman’s talk will also discuss the various innovative architectures and platforms for Internet applications that have emerged and the new products that are sure to follow advances in mobile and cloud computing, among other ongoing developments in the software industry.
Dr. Wasserman is the Executive Director of CMU-SV’s Center for Open Source Investigation (COSI) and is an established open source software expert. He was recently recognized for his teaching with the 2013 Influential Educator Award from the ACM’s Special Interest Group on Software Engineering (SIGSOFT). He is a Fellow of the ACM and a Life Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to the software industry.
