About the Author

The son of two computer scientists, Marco Aiello was exposed early to computers. At the age of three he met Turing Award winner Alan Kay; at eight he wrote his first computer program in Logo on a TI-99/4A. In the early days of the Web, while an intern at Apple Computer in Cupertino, he wrote his first set of Web Common Gateway Interfaces. He then pursued an academic career in Europe. Currently he is Professor of Service Computing at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. He is a prolific author in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence having written over 150 scientific papers and books.


"Aiello (Univ. of Stuttgart, Germany) documents the history of the Web in this small but informative volume. ... An excellent resource, particularly for students and professionals in computer science and engineering. Summing Up: Recommended. All academic levels." (C. Tappert, Choice, Vol. 56 (7), March, 2019)
