    It presents fundamental techniues for writing robust code such as assertions that should be part of every good programmer's toolbox Although the book uses C it is applicable to almost any programming language that uses procedural programmingThis book should be read as soon as possible in one's programming career as it provides a starting point to develop good programming habitsThis is a must read for programmers

    It's an old book but still relevant Excellent analysis and advice in how to improve the development processIt's interesting to note that agile processes like Scrum implement uite a bit of this advice in one way or another

    Lots of fairly advanced advice on how to keep bugs out of your software It's a 260 page book but it took me uite a while to read Because the advice is on C and not C I'm not sure how much it is going to help me But it did give me an appreciation for professional programming

    Excellent book Don't let the book's age or the C centric examples stop you from reading it it aged extremely well

  5. says:

    Somewhat dated advice

  6. says:

    The best book about the craft of programming I have ever seen Maguire discusses the crucial human factors that are essential to producing good code design clarity source readability and the self discipline you need to steer yourself away from magical thinking when the debugging gets rough Maguires examples are all in C and heavily Microsoft centric but that shouldn't dissuade anyone because the concepts are universal You have to read this if you are going to program for a living

    I referred to this book as a resource for a project i am handling currently Basically I was looking for some developers guidelines and some coding standard skeleton I have to take most of the advises hypothetically as most coding examples are a bit dated Some of the techniues described like extensive use of assert are actually replaced with some modern day techniues But this book bears all the traits of a classic

  8. says:

    A must read book for all the programmers as well as Managers All project managers should follow the steps given in this book if they don't want a delayed release with buggy product Programmers should adopt the suggestions made in the book to become a better programmer This is not a one time read book you need to keep reading this regularly so that you won't forget the tips

    Some parts of it are not actual any it was really shocking to see notes like don't reference deleted memory At this moment I realized that was whole different world back then when the book was written However surprisingly a lot of points techniues and principles are still actual Like don't be a slacker and do a decent job buddy

    This is a great just amazingly great book about techniues to create a solid code A lot of small chunks of programming pearls which also will help you to deliver succinct strategies on your teamIt has a lot of C code but don't be intimidate for that all the completely understandable and easy to digestRecommended to young and seasoned programmers
