This is the Real Silicon Valley
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this film and you will get to see the things that a college computer science course could never prepare you for: having to sleep at the office for days in order to meet a deadline, alienation from family, caffeine addiction, having one's release blocked by intellectual property concerns, and other cold realities of Silicon Valley. If you're thinking about getting a career in software engineering or software project management, Code Rush is a must-see.

This documentary also gives insight into a few of the major milestones in the history of the software industry, such as the opening of the Netscape source code, which is code named "Mozilla". If it weren't for this release, we wouldn't have Mozilla Firefox, one of the most popular Internet browsing solutions today. The footage also covers one of the most notable company acquisitions of that time period.

Sadly, this film has gone out-of-print, and has gotten fairly hard to find. I hope that it someday makes it to DVD.
