Oh well. The writing had been on the wall, but today it’s official: Software Development magazine, which I founded in 1992, has been absorbed by Dr. Dobb’s Journal and will cease publication. Ironically, SD was born when Dr. Dobb’s absorbed Computer Language after Miller Freeman (now CMP) bought DDJ. Between the two events, that means more than 150,000 subscribers who signed up for Computer Language or Software Development and winded up with DDJ. Just saying.
