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
Pete Goodliffe is a senior software engineer, currently working on embedded systems in C++. He never stays at the same place in the software food chain; from bringing new systems up, writing device drivers, through OS implementation, audio codecs, JVM implementation, to MIDI sequencing applications. He writes a regular column for accu.org called Professionalism in Programming and has published articles on software development in Hardcopy, C/C++ Users Journal, and Dr Dobb's Journal.
Comments about oreilly Becoming a Better Programmer:
I understand this is an early release but this book doesn't contain very much useful content. I have read other books on good development that were significantly better. When the book is final, I will try again and, hopefully, it will be more useful. Right now, it is a bunch of fluff with no good information.
