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 About the Author Pete Goodliffe is a programmer, a software development columnist, a musician, and author.

No mean feat! It has been translated into many languages. He writes a magazine column called "Becoming a Better Programmer," has contributed to several software development books, and regularly speaks on software development topics
