11 Best Programming Authors
« on: May 11, 2010, 05:10:42 PM »
David Intersimone over at ComputerWorld lays out his best authors (with links) from a programmer's perspective based on:

  • Their body of written and presented work - books, articles and presentations
  • Their contributions to programming's state-of-the-art
  • Specific books that "stand the test of time"
  • Their involvement in our craft and industry
  • If I'll read anything they publish
  • The person (many that I've met and some I wish I could meet).

They include:
  • Kent Beck
  • Jon Bentley
  • Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson and Jim Rumbaugh
  • Frederick P. Brooks, Jr.
  • Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister
  • Edsger W. Dijkstra
  • Martin Fowler
  • Watts S. Humphrey
  • Donald E. Knuth
  • Bjarne Stroustrup
  • Peter Coad and Ed Yourdon

the article is worth looking through as it has explanations for why he chose each one and links to their written work.  :up:

here's the explicit link from zaine's post in case you didn't notice it:
