Prominent figures in software engineering[edit]

The current list of Prominent figures in software engineering seems to originate from the History of software engineering article.

Now I just (a few days ago) removed that list there, see here. Allmost all people listed are developers of program languages. Now I think Software engineering is an other field of computer science, with own systems engineers. This list should be updated. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 00:24, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

I move this topic to the more main software engineering article as it provide quite specific information that fall out of scope of a simple "outline of software engineering".

I don't agree. That listing is allready present in the software engineering template. On the template talkpage, you find a long discussion about this, see here. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 02:06, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Regardless of where the information is, I think it is not necessary in this "outline of software engineering". It strikes me as a worthwhile information but much too specialised for a high level overview.

Guidelines for outlines[edit]

Guidelines for the development of outlines are being drafted at Wikipedia:Outlines.

Your input and feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.
