The Pragmatic Programmer

For twenty years, the lessons from The Pragmatic Programmer have helped a generation of programmers examine the very essence of software development, independent of any particular language, framework, or methodology. This classic title is regularly featured on “Top Ten” lists, and many corporations issue it to their new hires.

This new edition examines the core of modern software development—understanding what is wanted and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users. It covers topics ranging from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse.

What's up @

This week I've been focused on producing the video interview for this week's featured job. I did the entire thing myself: conducting the interview, editing, adding graphics, all of it.

It's been an enlightening process. I'm an engineer, not a journalist or video producer. Producing a video like this was hard, involving thousands of small decisions and tradeoffs, just like programming. As with an engineering project, the last 10% push to add polish and make it production ready took a lot longer than I expected.

I'm thrilled with the result. My primary goal was to help the employer show off their culture, and I think we've accomplished that. Expect more of these employer interviews in the future!

If you or someone you know is hiring and would like to participate in an interview, shoot me an email at It's completely free and takes less than an hour of your time!
