About the Author

This is the next "Pragmatic Programmer"--a guide for the beginner, a reminder for the expert, and a wonderful chunk of wisdom about the craft (and life) of a developer.--Derek Sivers Founder of CD Baby,

Ka Wai Cheung has written a book for professional developers seeking a code they can live by. This is not a book replete with conventional, find-it- in-any-blog ideas but a very powerful, focused approach to the craft and realities of professional programming.

If you are looking for a rehash of stale, sterile rules for programming, this is not the book for you. But if you are seeking a perspective on what creating software is, or if you want a set of guidelines laden by real-world experience, this is a book you need.--Bob Walsh Author and Founder of 47 Hats

Packed with delicious lessons yet consumable in bite (byte?) sized chunks --there's a lot to be learned in these pages. Take some time and learn from someone who's been there.--Adam Hoffman Senior Development Lead
