This book is the first serious book on spreadsheet implementation. It's accessible, yet thorough and deep--an ideal resource for people who need to implement spreadsheets or want to experiment with different options and new functionalities. -- Margaret Burnett, Professor of Computer Science, Oregon State University; architect of the Forms/3 and FAR research spreadsheet systems This book is the first comprehensive guide on how to build an entire spreadsheet system. It offers insight into the deep technical details of a spreadsheet, like parsing and formula evaluation, while remaining easy to understand for a broad software engineering audience. -- Felienne Hermans, Delft University of Technology; author of Analyzing and Visualizing Spreadsheets Thanks to Peter Sestoft, we now have two open source platforms that allow us to experiment with basic, advanced, and new innovative implementation concepts of spreadsheets. -- Martin Pinzger, Professor of Software Engineering and Spreadsheet Researcher, University of Klagenfurt
Peter Sestoft is Professor of Computer Science and Head of the Software and Systems Section at the IT University of Copenhagen.
