Book Description

A handbook for people who care about code

About the Author

Pete Goodliffe is a programmer, a software development columnist, a musician, and author. He never stays at the same place in the software food chain - his projects range from OS implementation, through audio codecs, to multimedia applications; from embedded firmware, through iOS development, to desktop applications. He has a passion for curry and doesn’t wear shoes.

Pete’s popular development book Code Craft is a practical and entertaining investigation of the entire programming pursuit. In about 600 pages. No mean feat! It has been translated into many languages. He writes a magazine column called "Becoming a Better Programmer," has contributed to several software development books, and regularly speaks on software development topics.
