Go To: Software Superheroes, by Steve Lohr

I bought this book back in 2002 and only got around to reading it in 2015! Good thing too as it probably wouldn't have made much sense back then! Good book on the evolution of software and programming from the 1950s through to the 2000s I thought. I liked the last few chapters in particular which chronicled the birth of the internet and web programming and then the introduction of Java and lastly the growth of Apache and the open source community.
