This december I won a book (actually I won four, but the other ones were just not as great) in a technology contest. I don't know how I have missed out on this one. I have seen it on the booksshelfes but I have not read it until now. I must say that its brilliant. "The Pragmatic Programmer" is a pleasure to read.
The Pragmatic programmer is about thinking while you develop. It promotes the obvious that is apparently not as obvious as we thought. Its as if the authors read my blog posts before I even wrote them :) This book really makes you think and I hope I can get my current collegues as well as future ones to read this so they can reflect a little about their actions.
