The Pragmatic Programmer

9 March 2005 — 1-minute read

I finally finished reading The Pragmatic Programmer, by Dave Thomas and Andy Hunt. I’d long intended to read it, and a month ago I found it at Barnes and Noble. Having a gift certificate from Christmas to spend, I picked it up.

I really, really liked it. I’ve already found myself changing how I write software. The biggest change I’ve noticed in myself is that I am now trying to think about how I write software, and why I make various decisions while programming. It’s the kind of book, though, that you need to review periodically. I’ll definitely be keeping it handy.

Next on my bookshelf to read: Extreme Programming Explained, by Kent Beck.
