RIP Dr. Dobb’s

Eric Sink:

Still, the passing of this magazine is rather historic for our young industry. Dr. Dobb’s first started publication in 1976, about the same time that Microsoft and Apple were founded. A significant slice of today’s programmers weren’t even born yet. For many people, the last few years of 64-page issues are all they have ever seen of DDJ. They don’t remember that Dr. Dobb’s Journal was a pretty great magazine back in its day.

I read and enjoyed Dr. Dobb’s from the mid-nineties until a few years ago, when it had become thinner and more Windows-centric.
