  3. 3. CODE COMPLETE ➤ In programming, it is difficult to make even the smallest of decisions ➤ Which variable name or control structure to use? To comment or not to comment? Should I refactor this code? ➤ This book covers provides a big-picture for software development and also delves into minute details http://amzn.com/0735619670
  4. 4. THE PRAGMATIC PROGRAMMER ➤ This classic book provides valuable and practical advice to programmers ➤ Not specific to any language or technology ➤ Provides specific “tips” ➤ My favourite: Tip 35 - “Finish what you start” ➤ I got exposed to concepts such as “broken window theory” from this book http://amzn.com/020161622X
  5. 5. DESIGN PATTERNS ➤ Classic work on patterns ➤ Provides insights on creating effective object oriented designs ➤ Generic “reusable” design knowledge ➤ This is not a book that you can read from front to back cover ➤ I come back to reading it for getting inspiration from time- to-time (e.g., the initial chapter is a “treatise” on OO) http://amzn.com/020163361
  6. 6. REFACTORING ➤ Classic work on refactoring ➤ Provides insights on emergent design and how to create and evolve quality software ➤ This book covers foundational aspects, process and mechanics of refactoring ➤ Written in a free-flowing and easy-to-read style ➤ Inspiration for writers like me http://amzn.com/0201485672

  8. 8. THE MYTHICAL MAN-MONTH ➤ In my first-job, I understood that software development is much more than programming ➤ Mythical man-month is a old book (1975!) but what it discusses still remains relevant ➤ Few years back I came across a project where the project manager was adding people to a late project ➤ Wanted to tell him: "adding manpower to a late software project makes it later" http://amzn.com/0201835959
  9. 9. EXTREME PROGRAMMING EXPLAINED ➤ Kent Beck is one of those amazing programmers ➤ He explains his approach towards software development in XP (Extreme Programming) ➤ Many practices such as writing tests before code (TDD), pair programming, etc are now widely accepted (aside: XP is still evolving) ➤ I like this book because of its pragmatic view on software development practices http://amzn.com/0321278658
  10. 10. AGILE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ➤ Robert C Martin is another programmer that I greatly admire ➤ His important contribution: documenting key design principles such as Single Responsibility Principle (SRP), Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP), and Interface Segregation Principle (DSP) ➤ This book provides his perspective towards software design and development http://amzn.com/0135974445
  11. 11. SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION ➤ Check out our book on refactoring ➤ Why care about software design viewed from the perspective of technical debt ➤ Covers 25 design smells classified as violation of the principles of abstraction, encapsulation, modularization, or hierarchy ➤ Interesting anecdotes and case studies reported from the trenches working in real-world projectshttp://amzn.com/0128013974 www.designsmells.com
