The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master by Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas.
Date Finished: April 11th, 2017
Reading Time: A week
For a total beginner, the concepts will be difficult to internalize. For a seasoned programmer (on a good team…), it will be little more than a general reinforcement. While it’s hard to imagine the right time in one’s career to read the The Pragmatic Programmer (probably, often), it’s a classic. It’s written at a high enough level that very little material is outdated. In fact, some of the arguments ring much truer now than they would have in 1999.
