Re: Is it just me...?

in reply to How do I become a good programmer?

I'd recommend Steve McConnell's Code Complete. While merlyn's Learning Perl got me started in programming, Code Complete turned me from a beginning programmer into a professional (of sorts), even though it generally deals with languages I rarely use. The Pragmatic Programmer is another excellent book... but you've already got that. :)

Also, I've rarely had to come up with algorithms on my own, since there are such nice algorithm books out there.

    kevin, were u referring to bentley's programming pearls or the o'reilly's perl book(programming perl)?

      It's the Bentley book.

      I used the O'Reilly book to learn Perl though.

[uhClem]: And besides, the objection to it was off-topic.
[Discipulus]: 1nickt hide signature is a positive action; i think is not a solution here
[erix]: my objection to sigs is just that they take screen space. ( Some monks would have *several* slogans underneath a 1-liner reply )
