From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
For ten years, Steve McConnell’s Code Complete has inspired programmers to get better at their profession and has given them powerful insights for doing so. Now, he’s thoroughly overhauled Code Complete to reflect all that’s happened since 1994. Web programming. Agile and collaborative methods. Patterns. Refactoring.
There are some code examples here -- now in C#, VB.NET, and Java. (And object-oriented techniques are now woven throughout.) But the heart of the book is still how to think more clearly at every level.
How much planning is enough for your project? How do you manage complexity? Choose the right language for the task? Write higher-quality code? Organize it effectively? Cope with the realities of integration? Few books deal well with questions like these. Code Complete, Second Edition does, and it’s indispensable. Bill Camarda
