Books that are my Developer Mantra
I can’t put it any simpler: buy and read those 2 books ASAP.
This is proper stuff. This is stuff that translates into words what you, THE DEVELOPER, would like to have in your daily work life.
And probably the reason for which having a pet project, something where you set the rules, helps remaining sane, and sometimes to dream that, one day, you will be on your own.
