[Link] First use of software engineering term

In a post titled <The origin of “software engineering”> Bertrand Meyer writes that the term was not coined in 1968 during the famous NATO conference at Garmisch-Partenkirchen but – at least – two years earlier, in August 1966 by the ACM President.

See the link above for the full story.

But I still think it’s correct to say that the term “software engineering” was not of general use until the conference.
