Becoming a Better Programmer, Paperback / softback Book

Becoming a Better Programmer Paperback / softback


If you're passionate about programming and want to get better at it, you've come to the right source.

Code Craft author Pete Goodliffe presents a collection of useful techniques and approaches to the art and craft of programming that will help boost your career and your well-being.

Goodliffe presents sound advice that he's learned in 15 years of professional programming.

The book's standalone chapters span the range of a software developer's life - dealing with code, learning the trade, and improving performance - with no language or industry bias.

Whether you're a seasoned developer, a neophyte professional, or a hobbyist, you'll find valuable tips in five independent categories: Code-level techniques for crafting lines of code, testing, debugging, and coping with complexity Practices, approaches, and attitudes: keep it simple, collaborate well, reuse, and create malleable code Tactics for learning effectively, behaving ethically, finding challenges, and avoiding stagnation Practical ways to complete things: use the right tools, know what "done" looks like, and seek help from colleagues Habits for working well with others, and pursuing development as a social activity
