I have just read "Beautiful Code: Leading Programmers Explain How They Think" by Andy Oram and Greg Wilson.
That's an interesting book where they let leading programmers explain their vision about beauty in code.
You will find here my notes about my favorite chapters of this book, more precisely :
- "Subversion's delta-editor interface as ontology" by Karl Fogel
- "Beautiful tests" by Alberto Savoia
- "On-the-fly code generation for image processing" by Charles Petzold
- "How elegant code evolves with hardwares : The case of Gaussian elimination" by Jack Dongarra and Piotr Luszczek
- "Another level of indirection" by Diomidis Spinellis
- Distributed programming with MapReduce" by Jeff Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat
- "Emacspeak : the complete audio desktop" by T. V. Raman [Plus]

I just read "Extreme.NET - Introducing eXtreme Programming Techniques to .NET Developpers" by Dr. Neil Roodyn.
Just find my comments about this interesting book speaking about all parts of Agile development : task definition, refactoring, spiking, pair programming, TDD (test driven development), continuous integration and many more. [Plus]

A few time ago, I have decided to publish some about the books I read. Of course, I won't speak about old books, but I will try to do so for the most interesting one I will read from now.

In that goal, I have added a link "Books" on the left part on the website where you will get the list of the books I'm reading, with a link to amazon, and a link to the post where I have done my criticism. If you have also some exciting reading you would like to share, do not hesitate to send me information ! [Plus]
