Very useful tips
July 14th, 2014
I agree with the tips stated in the book. And i feel that this book should be a basic learning book for every programmer around the world, so you don`t need to realize what you've done wrong is too late to fix and have to put more effort do everything all over again. It's like a softskill for programmer.
