Pragmatic Programmer

I finally finished reading the Pragmatic Programmer last night – i’ve been diving into it, devouring a couple of chapters, then leaving it on my bedside for a month since I bought it.  I do have to say that it is easily the best programming book ever written, hands down.  It doesn’t cover any single technology or language, but if you want to make a career out of professional programming, you need to have read this book.

Also, one section late in the book is titled “It’s just a wafer thin mint…”.  You can’t go wrong with spurious monty-python references.

Seriously though, I can’t rave about this book enough. If I was hiring a programmer, i’d want them to have read this book.  Actually, i’d want them to live by this book, but failing that, at least have read it šŸ˜‰

It is good.
