The Pragmatic Programmer

I've just finished reading The Pragmatic Programmer by Hunt&Thomas. I'll try to be pragmatic and keep it brief; I liked the book because it is
  • timeless - talks about patterns and ideas as opposed to domain-specific tips'n'trick
  • well-written - no waffle or forced jokes, the reader is easily able to relate,
  • down to the point - book well structured, every chapter hides some value for the reader.
The authors discuss critical aspects and problems in software engineering: testing, estimation, orthogonality, "programming by coincidence", refactoring. A really good read, The Pragmatic Programmer was time well spent.

  1. The Fast and Furious 8 is going to be one hell of a movie and I can't wait for it to come out in April. With Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren joining the cast, The fast and furious franchise has been pushed to a whole new level. Really looking forward to it. Fast and Furious 8 Release Date
