Stefan Koopmanschap's Blog:
Book Review The Productive Programmer
June 18, 2009 @ 08:46:37

In this new post to his blog today Stefan Koopmanschap reviews a book that, while not specifically PHP related, can help out just about anyone digging their hands into source code daily - "The Productive Programmer" (Neal Ford, O'Reilly).

So what is the book about? Basically, it is a programmer efficiency guide. It goes through several tools, pieces of software but also development approaches that will make your developer life easier and more efficient.

He goes on to talk about the two main sections of the book - Mechanics and Practice - and what's contained in each. Stefan also points out a few things that he learned as he went through the book including a strong push for automation, how some of the ancient philosophies still apply to development today and the motivation to question how things "have always been done" to look for a better way.
