Early Reviews

Anderson This ebook sheds light on how the concept of "Lean", originating from the management structure at Toyota in the s, can be applied to software development. Topics such as the need for testable goals, automating donkey work and the need for customer involvement are all discussed in this ebook. Programming From The Ground Up By Jonathan Bartlett As the title might indicate, this ebook is really aimed at beginners to programming and development, teaching them how to think, write and learn like a programmer.

The three chapters in the book discuss developing new features, pull requests and code reviews as well as deployment pipelines and zero downtime deployment. Foundations Of Programming By Karl Seguin This ebook, as the title suggests, tackles the basic foundations of programming and how to build better software. The author discusses topics such as ALT.

But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still' and suggested that every seventh sprint should be spent cleaning up code.

What is the right time frame for that? If you're on a monthly delivery cycle then I think every half year you should skip a cycle and just spend time cleaning the code up. Every startup of the day had some crazy thing that would take , method calls to start up and print 'hello, world'.

That's a travesty; you don't want to be a programmer associated with that sort of thing. At SGI, the kernel, of course, was where the real programmers with chest hair went, and there you couldn't screw around. Kernel malloc was a new thing; we still used fixed-sized tables, and we panicked when we filled them up.

But merely the fact that they're the smartest people in the organization doesn't mean they should be making all the decisions, because intelligence is not a scalar quantity; it's a vector quantity. What we're doing is an aesthetic pursuit. It involves craftsmanship as well as mathematics and it involves people skills and prose skills - all of these things that we don't necessarily think of as engineering but without which I don't think you'll ever be a really good engineer.

And to me it's very basic. If you grow up in a family where when the cupboard door doesn't close right, somebody opens it up and looks at the hinge and sees that a screw is loose and therefore it's hanging this way vs. To me you don't need any involvement with computers to have that experience of what you see isn't right, what do you do? And then if you see the problem, how do you fix it?

To me it's so basic and human and comes so much from parent to child. Computers are certainly a medium for doing that.

But they're just computers. There's a lot of that that will transfer, but to me it's really big and basic and human, so it's not like we're going to enlighten the world just by teaching them computers. This book is just a bunch of interviews with some programmers you might recognize and some you may not.

It seems to be pretty lightly edited and some people may find some sections boring and others may not! I ordered the book before reading some of the negative reviews and I'm very glad I did. I almost hesitated to start reading it thinking that it was going to be boring and dry but it wasn't. Yes, there is definitely heavy use of acronyms and terms that I wasn't familiar with but to me it was a learning opportunity and a chance to dig a little deeper to figure out what the interviewees were talking about.

It's tough to predict if this book will appeal to you. If you're a seasoned software industry professional with a deep love for the 'craft' of coding then you'll love this collection if interviews. I certainly did and it reminded me of why I got into this industry in the first place and it resited a love for coding.It involves craftsmanship as well as mathematics and it involves people skills and prose skills - all of these things that we don't necessarily think of as engineering but without which I don't think you'll ever be a really good engineer.

Reflections on the Craft of Programming

This reviewer noticed that several readers had expected some type of how-to guide by each individual interviewed, but the content here is composed of discussion points, as the subtitle suggests. I can see the appeal in that, but, I can't really see myself doing it long-term, which many of them have done. It gives the reader a good glimpse of how these people conduct their work and their history with programming and computer science.

Coders at Work

We reviewed general coding knowledge and what books are best recommended for the job, front end Programming like html and css, then finally back-end Development. This book drives home that software development is about clear, literate communication and deep thinking about philosophical approaches to problem solving, as much as it's about tools and techniques.

It was self-validating for me to read about others who are passionate about software development - its not something you read about often. How did you learn to program? Please verify that you are not a robot.
