Interview with the woman in charge of the software for the 1969 Moon Landing

(1/1)

wraith808:
An interview with the first software engineer ("Computer science and software engineering were not yet disciplines"), and a hero of the Apollo missions.

The computer system was the most sophisticated of its day. Her rigorous approach was so successful that no software bugs were ever known to have occurred during any crewed Apollo missions.

Thanks for sharing this.

Seems like an interesting person -- there appears to be a Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Hamilton_%28software_engineer%29 -- where there was a link to a relevant video with her: https://www.makers.com/margaret-hamilton
