I really want to get this book because my professor emphasizes the importance of programming when doing GIS. Your salary goes up just knowing how to do this. I really wish I could talk to someone who thinks this book would be good for GIS.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Code Reading: The Open Source Perspective
A valuable resource for best practices, do's and don'ts, what works and why, what you should do in various situations of project, code, and architecture evaluation, and everything in between. In one phrase, this book depicts Software Engineering's best practices for the real world. No heavy-duty processes to follow, no reading of Software Engineering text books that are over a 1000+ pages. More importantly, everything in this book is REAL. References are given to open source projects where the author took the examples from, and the CD-Rom includes the complete code examples given in the text. D. Spinellis did a great job putting this book together. This book is packed with examples, best practices and information that are useful to developers, project leads and managers. Now you can have all the experience of the open-source community, the people that developed Linux, Apache and other popular software applications, at the tip of your finger.Was this review helpful?
