( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I need to pick out the ones I should read and recommend to junior programmers.

Given that qualification, I recommend Gauss and Weinberg, Are Your Lights On?: How to Figure Out What the Problem Really Is. Particularly for junior programmers who are moving from environments where the problem they're given really is the problem (e.g., academic assignments), to environments where the problem is starting to get fuzzy and ill-defined.

It's a short book, and some of the examples are dated, but it's the kind of book that plants seeds.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
