>Craftsmanship and Ethics

>Robert Martin is one of my favorite authors and speakers. His Clean Code book is one I always recommend. Particularly to those starting out, but it’s even more crucial for those that have been writing code for a while. He has posted a talk on InfoQ about Craftsmanship and Ethics. It’s a highly recommended talk to view. Craftsmanship is something that is rare…anybody can hack code, but craftsmanship takes years and years to develop.

    >Well, his latest book “Clean Code” is a good one to start with. His blog is always good as well, that is listed in my blog roll.

    >Hello David,Thanks for the comments. I was wondering whether you have read ‘Implementation Patterns’ by Kent Beck?Please read the review http://www.coderanch.com/t/93912/Book-Reviews/Clean-Code-by-Robert-CThe reviewer refers about Implementation Patterns? If you had read I would have got a better opinion.

    >Anything by Kent Beck, Martin Fowler, Mike Cohn, Ward Cunningham, Ron Jeffries, or Robert Martin is a must read. I haven’t read that particular book.Really almost any book by the guys that signed the Agile Manifesto is a worthy read.
