Becoming a Better Programmer
A Handbook for People Who Care About Code
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: June 2014
Pages: 360

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Pete Goodliffe, author of Code Craft, presents several lessons that will help you go beyond just being a good coder. You’ll learn how to become a better worker, a better team member, and even a better person. This is a book for people who care about code, who are passionate about the way they create it, and who want to do an even better job.

The topics covered in this book cover the whole gamut of the software developer’s life:

  • Code-level concerns that affect how you write individual lines of code, as well as how you design your software modules
  • Practical techniques that will help you to work better
  • Effective advice for being a better part of a team, and communicating with colleagues
  • Illustrations of the correct attitudes and approaches to adopt that will help you become both more effective and well-rounded
