I learned today that Watts Humphrey died yesterday. His obituary from the SEI can be found here.
I have great admiration for Humphrey’s work. During my stay in CMU in 92-93, he was a guest lecturer in our Software Process Improvement course. His lecture was about the Personal Software Process. I was deeply impressed by his insights and the fascinating anecdotes he had to tell… his professional life was immensely rich. He was also a very talented lecturer.
