Alexander’s Notes on the Synthesis of Form was required reading for researchers in computer science throughout the 1960’s. Marvin Minsky, founder of MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Lab, recommended it to students and colleagues. It had an aesthetic influence in the 1960’s and 1970’s on programming language design, modular programming, object-oriented programming, software engineering and other design methodologies. Alexander’s mathematical concepts and orientation were similar to Edsger Dijkstra‘s influential A Discipline of Programming.
