JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Man-Month Retrospective

[ #3521 ]
Harsh, interesting, remarkably attention-grabbing for a book on writing software. Next up is _Practice_.

Seymour Papert is speaking at the lecture area tomorrow, as part of some...speaky-lectury thing. I can't remember the details right now, but I'll pick up a flyer on the way out.

  • I think MMM is one of the greatest. But the real insights didn't shine out to me until I looked at it again with more career under my belt. Now I've decided I intend to read it once a year.

    J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers

      I got it out to look up a quote a few years ago. A few hours later I went to bed after having read it again cover to cover. I was impressed with how timely it still was. Then a little while later they published the 25'th anniversary edition and it really struck me how astounding that it was that the book was still so timely. There are a lot of really deep insights in that book.
