The field of software engineering had its beginnings in the 1960s, almost 50 years ago. Since that time you would expect that significant progress has been made in understanding the models, methods, and techniques that lend themselves to proper software development. However, we are still making some of the same mistakes that were supposedly solved in the 1960s and 1970s. Industry still doesn't understand the critical importance that correct programs have in the proper functioning of society today. In this paper, several examples are given in how we are still reinventing the wheel as well as describing new challenges that will impact software engineers in the near future.
