We provide a personal view of the development of the discontinuous Galerkin methods since their inception in the early 70's until the present time with the intention to contribute to a sense of belonging of the current community working on these methods and in order to place their efforts into historical perspective. For the next generation, scientific tasks as well as anecdotal crumbs of wisdom, learned on a lifetime of mathematical work, are also proposed.
