The Pragmatic Programmer, From Journeyman to Master

| | Comments (0)

I've been reading some really great books on startups and programming over on hn-books.com. Putting together a resource where I can answer questions folks have about programming and startups in one spot by using books? Then reviewing each book to give the reader an idea of what they're getting into? I think it was one of the more fun ideas I've ever had.

I just completed reading "The Pragmatic Programmer, From Journeyman to Master", and it was just another in a long series of cool titles. Probably ranks in the top 3-5 learning-to-be-a-master-programmer list, which means it's a shame I haven't gotten around to reading it until just now. I learned a lot of these lessons the hard way: by trial and error.

Recently I created a list of books that hackers recommend to each other -- what are the books super hackers use to help guide them form their own startups and make millions? hn-books might be a site you'd like to check out.
On the low-end of the spectrum, I realized that a lot of people have problems logging into Facebook, of all things. So I created a micro-site to help folks learn how to log-in correctly, and to share various funny pictures and such that folks might like to share with their friends. It's called (appropriately enough) facebook login help
