Wiki’s are also good

At work today I was moving the style guide into the wiki which led me over to the original WikiWikiWeb to see if I could do an InterWiki link for Rob Pike (I included some quotes he made about software engineering in the style guide).

Anyway the point I am getting to is that it reminded me that I had been meaning to have a look at The Practice of Programming and it was interesting to see that a lot of other people share the view that all these ‘new’ software development techniques – ie Expert, Agile, Aspect, etc – are basically just a rewording of the practices that have been followed for some time.

I have also added Informal History Of Programming Ideas to my list of things to read…

Some other books that have been recommended to me are: * Peopleware * Code Complete
