Recommended reading: “97 Things Every Programmer Should Know” – Programmer 97-things

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/21

Every so often, I come across a pearl that I hand’t read before. This time I was looking for the source of “nothing is more permanent than a temporary solution”, and somehow came across the book 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know.

It is full of interesting concepts phrased in easy to read chapters on important things like “Code in the Languae of the Domain“, “Don’t Repeat Yourself” and many (95 <g>) others.

For a small introduction, read the PDF presentation extract, and the 97 things website.

  2. “nothing is more permanent than a temporary solution”

    That is so true. I wrote a quick and dirty fix application with Delphi version 5 years ago and last I heard it was still up and running. I imagine the person who requisitioned the “temporary fix” left the company and forgot to mention the fix was suppose to be temporary.
