Hello guys.

I would like to ask you about any book title or online resources where I can find information about history of the scripting languages and server-sidde technologies from the early days.

Thanks for any sugestions.

What do you mean by "the early days"?
Time-sharing servers have been around since the 1960s and multi-player games existed.
Networked servers have been around since the 1970s, and there were always some games on those.
Internet and MUDs came around in the '80s. Some MUDs were developed in LISP or variants, which probably counts as "scripting languages."
A little more precision in your question will probably lead to more precision in the answer.

That's an extremely large subject, and I don't know of any single book that would cover that.
I think your best bet is to come up with various words describing what you actually want to know, and plug "history of X" or "development of X" into Google to find references.
Given that you're also wanting information about the pre-Google area, you'll probably have to follow citations/references offline, to paper libraries.

I agree, also, if you can come up with good keywords using digital libraries IEEE (http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/Xplore/home.jsp) and ACM (http://dl.acm.org/) are one of the best resources (imo). However, many researches there needs you either to buy them to access or sign in with your university credentials (if you are student and your university has a deal with those sites wink.png). Google scholar is a good alternative too. The bottom line still is that researching is a hard work, you often need to browse through variety of papers to form broader (and more "correct") understanding about the topic you are looking for. And yes, you are not probably doing a real researching - just wanted to point out that information is very scattered if going with the "article-route" smile.png
