The history of software engineering is not very long, but rather intensive. In the beginning of the 40s, programming was seen mainly as manual, electronic engineering job, done by women, in particular mathematicians (compare e.g., Schinzel and Zimmer, 1998). Changing more and more to an intellectual, mathematical, high status task programming started to be male-coded and remained to be done by men.
