in reply to Programming every day

Coding is not the only activity to become good. Learning the theory of good programming style also helps. That's why I heartily recommend Code Complete. Forget the fact that it's put out by Microsoft press. Just buy it.

I've learned many of my programming techniques by trial and error, or just picking up "tips and tricks" from others. "Code Complete" attempts to take best practices and lump them all together on one handbook. It doesn't mess around with project management, developing your project specification or how to sell your product. It gets down and dirty into the "this is good, this is bad" detail that every programmer needs to know. Do you want to know what cohesion is? Have you ever wondered what positive uses there are for global variables? Do your variables suffer from hybrid coupling? Buy this book and have the answers. Each section is independant from the others, so you can just focus on the areas that are most interesting to you.
