Untitled[edit]

According to this, this article stated that Meyer died on 24th of December. Where is this edit? It's certainly not in the deletion logs or in a deleted version in the history! - Ta bu shi da yu 08:11, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

It's on the German Wikipedia - oops. Didn't notice this. - Ta bu shi da yu 08:20, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

removed this link, it leads to a "not found"....

There is a funny computer game called "Murfy's law : Bertrand's Rage!", which Mr. Meyer showed us during his presentation. It was developed in Eiffel by 1st year students, and shows some inside atmosphere in ETH -- the aim of game is to spoil Bertrand's lecture. Maybe add to external links? Project home page

Fortran programmer[edit]

While at Électricité de France, Dr Meyer apparently coded in Fortran. See

Bertrand Meyer, "Principles of Package Design", Commun. ACM 25(7): 419-428 (1982)

which is full of excellent advice for Fortran programmers. (I mention this in case anyone adds a "Trivia" section to the article.) Cheers, CWC(talk) 13:33, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Picture thing[edit]

Taking this issue to the talk page since edit summaries are short. :) I think that even though the consensus for the picture was "keep", we don't really need to have it on this article. He doesn't want it here, and I don't know of any reason to have it here except that it's nice to put pictures on articles. Dreamyshade (talk) 01:47, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

We don't really need Wikipedia either. The norm is to have a photo on the biography page. Looking at other biographies, it's hard to find one without a photo. A headshot would be better, but we can only choose from the Wikipedia Commons stock. I looked at the history, and it's clear that the consensus was to include the photo. --David Broadfoot (talk) 15:25, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
