Abstract

The rapid pace of Information Technology has become an article of faith for many. While we are surrounded by new products and new versions of products, all of these rest upon common foundations established decades earlier. A firm grasp of computer science theory can make the difference between a frustrating career spent always attempting to catch up and one where "new" things can be quickly and properly classified and assimilated. A successful career as an information technologist has required a solid background in computer science. In the next twenty-five years, this foundation will require the ability to make that science relevant—without watering it down.
