Product description

Review

"To participate in the next generation of professional product delivery you have to be pragmatic but disciplined. Otherwise, you are fated to be ungrounded dreamers whose products endanger people and whose ideas never become successfully integrated into the world. Andy and Dave described a pragmatic but disciplined approach which is a key step towards professionalism."
-Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum and founder of Scrum.org, agile manifesto signatory, and author of Software in 30 Days.

"Picking adjectives is hard work. In The Pragmatic Programmer, Dave and Andy set the tone for their work-thoughtful, expert, aspirational, and full of care for themselves and those they touch through their programs. From its publication, this was the book to read if you wanted to work to improve."
-Kent Beck, Gusto, author of Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change, Test-Driven Development: By Example, and The Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns


"Some say that with The Pragmatic Programmer, Andy and Dave captured lightning in a bottle; that it's unlikely anyone will soon write a book that can move an entire industry as it did. Sometimes, though, lightning does strike twice, and this book is proof. The updated content ensures that it will stay at the top of "best books in software development" lists for another 20 years, right where it belongs."
--VM (Vicky) Brasseur, Director of Open Source Strategy, Juniper Networks

"If you want your software to be easy to modernize and maintain, keep a copy of The Pragmatic Programmer close. It's filled with practical advice, both technical and professional, that will serve you and your projects well for years to come."
--Andrea Goulet, CEO, Corgibytes; Founder, LegacyCode.Rocks

"The Pragmatic Programmer is the one book I can point to that completely dislodged the existing trajectory of my career in software and pointed me in the direction of success. Reading it opened my mind to the possibilities of being a craftsman, not just a cog in a big machine. One of the most significant books in my life."
--Obie Fernandez, Author, The Rails Way

"First-time readers can look forward to an enthralling induction into the modern world of software practice, a world that the first edition played a major role in shaping. Readers of the first edition will rediscover here the insights and practical wisdom that made the book so significant in the first place, expertly curated and updated, along with much that's new."
--David A. Black, Author, The Well-Grounded Rubyist

"I have an old paper copy of the original Pragmatic Programmer on my bookshelf. It has been read and re-read and a long time ago it changed everything about how I approached my job as a programmer. In the new edition everything and nothing has changed: I now read it on my iPad and the code examples use modern programming languages--but the underlying concepts, ideas, and attitudes are timeless and universally applicable. Twenty years later, the book is as relevant as ever. It makes me happy to know that current and future developers will have the same opportunity to learn from Andy and Dave's profound insights as I did back in the day."
--Sandy Mamoli, Agile coach; Author of How Self-Selection Lets People Excel
