7 Lessons for Software Developers from Heinlein
« on: January 03, 2010, 03:32 AM »
Robert Heinlein wasn't really a programmer, of course. But in his writing career he said or wrote several things (in his own voice or that of a fictional character) that can help any software developer improve her code... or her career.



I also like this one on not getting burned by computer consulting contracts.

 ;D it doesn't really help me. If you want to improve your code, maybe you should read the book "Writing Scientific Software, A Guide to Good Style" by Suely Oliveira and David Stewart.
