What others in the trenches say about The Pragmatic Programmer...''The cool thing about this book is that it's great for keeping the programming process fresh. The book helps you to continue to grow and clearly comes from people who have been there.'' --Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change ''I found this book to be a great mix of solid advice and wonderful analogies!'' --Martin Fowler, author of Refactoring and UML Distilled ''I would buy a copy, read it twice, then tell all my colleagues to run out and grab a copy. This is a book I would never loan because I would worry about it being lost.'' --Kevin Ruland, Management Science, MSG-Logistics ''The wisdom and practical experience of the authors is obvious. The topics presented are relevant and useful...By far its greatest strength for me has been the outstanding analogies--tracer bullets, broken windows, and the fabulous helicopter-based explanation of the need for orthogonality, especially in a crisis situation. I have little doubt that this book will eventually become an excellent source of useful information for journeymen programmers and expert mentors alike.''--John Lakos, author of Large-Scale C++ Software Design ''This is the sort of book I will buy a dozen copies of when it comes out so I can give it to my clients. '' --Eric Vought, Software Engineer ''Most modern books on software development fail to cover the basics of what makes a great software developer, instead spending their time on syntax or technology where in reality the greatest leverage possible for any software team is in having talented developers who really know their craft well. An excellent book.'' --Pete McBreen, Independent Consultant ''Since reading this book, I have implemented many of the practical suggestions and tips it contains. Across the board, they have saved my company time and money while helping me get my job done quicker! This should be a desktop reference for everyone who works with code for a living.'' --Jared Richardson, Senior Software Developer, iRenaissance, Inc. ''I would like to see this issued to every new employee at my company...'' --Chris Cleeland, Senior Software Engineer, Object Computing, Inc. ''If I'm putting together a project, it's the authors of this book that I want...And failing that I'd settle for people who've read their book.''--Ward Cunningham Straight from the programming trenches, The Pragmatic Programmer cuts through the increasing specialization and technicalities of modern software development to examine the core process--taking a requirement and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users. It covers topics ranging from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse. Read this book, and you'll learn how to *Fight software rot; *Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge; *Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code; *Avoid programming by coincidence; *Bullet-proof your code with contracts, assertions, and exceptions; *Capture real requirements; *Test ruthlessly and effectively; *Delight your users; *Build teams of pragmatic programmers; and *Make your developments more precise with automation. Written as a series of self-contained sections and filled with entertaining anecdotes, thoughtful examples, and interesting analogies, The Pragmatic Programmer illustrates the best practices and major pitfalls of many different aspects of software development.Whether you're a new coder, an experienced programmer, or a manager responsible for software projects, use these lessons daily, and you'll quickly see improvements in personal productivity, accuracy, and job satisfaction. You'll learn skills and develop habits and attitudes that form the foundation for long-term success in your career. You'll become a Pragmatic Programmer.

  • Zeer goed

    Zeer goed boek, wel gedateerd, maar de inhoud blijft van toepassing. Tip: Lees ook The Clean Coder van Robert Martin

    Rather than taking you on a journey with a beginning and an end, this book is a collection of wisdom and practical advice from the trenches. It describes, for many area’s of software development and project management, best practices based on experience. Then it compiles that discription into a one-liner as a “tip”. There are 70 tips, and some of them are pure poetry. You can read this book in any order, and keep it around for reference on specific subjects.

    I do believe that a lot of the information only makes sense if you have personally experienced the problems that are being described. If you’re just starting out as a programmer and use this book as a guideline – it will certainly help, but you won’t really grasp why. And because of that you won’t get as much out of it. So by all means, read it. But then re-read it when you’re a couple of years along…

    Lessons learned:
    “Don’t live with broken windows” – Tip 4, p.5
    A brand new building will always look clean, well built and attractive. But as time goes by, without the proper maintenance, that same building will deteriorate to the point where it’s abandoned completely. The theory is, that a single broken window left unfixed will give the impression that nobody cares and cause it to happen. Always fix your windows is some seriously good advice, that I have not taken for way to long in my career.

    “Rather than construction, software is more like gardening” - p.184
    Traditionally, software development is compared to construction, where something is built according to extremely detailed plans drawn up by an architect. But gardening is a better choice of metaphor, because the initial plan is always subject to change under influence of outside forces (rain and sunshine) and time.

    “Don’t think outside the box, find the box” – Tip 55, p.213
    When faced with a problem, we tend to eliminate possible solutions because they are unconventional. But finding those solutions can be done by finding or describing the true constraints (the real “box”), and using that extra space you didn’t think you had before.

    This book should be on every developers bookshelf, no doubt about it!

  • Programmeren en alles wat er bij komt kijken.

    Dit boek gaat niet alleen over programmeren, maar ook over alles wat er mee te maken heeft; design, foutafhandeling, requirements, sourcecontrol, communicatie, project management, code generators, testen en project automation. En alles is duidelijk geschreven in korte secties. Het boek is handig voor iedereen die net begint met programmeren en basis wil hebben in de omliggende zaken. Of voor de gevorderde die zijn proces zou willen verbeteren.
