“Rough Cut” version of “Making Software” now available

July 15, 2010 at 2:51 pm 2 comments

Greg Wilson and Andy Oram’s new book Making Software is now available in a “rough cuts” version: http://my.safaribooksonline.com/9780596808310.  It’s in “pre-final” stage, and I understand that not all the chapters are there yet.  But the chapter I wrote on why programming is hard to learn is there, as well as some other chapters on topics related to this blog like on impacts of expertise and personality on software development, pair programming, comparisons of programming languages, and variations in programmer productivity.

    “the-current” -> “then-current”.

    Is this chapter freely available, perhaps as an article?

      I don’t know if I have the right to do that. I think that the publisher is planning to make versions available freely, once the book is published.
