You can read all chapters in a row, like I did, or pick up the ones that might interest you at a particular time.
A good reference and acquisition, defenitely.
John Robbins gives a great foreword however, and the cover design is great with nice chapter quotes.
Visual Studio 2008 Team System is the minimum required software to work with the code.
Where's the beef? "Designing for Scale" was such a promising chapter, but instead offered platitudes and hardly solid advice. "Choose Scalable Application Designs: Design simple application architectures, Design to scale out, Partition data effectively..." And "Design Application Infrastructure to Scale: Load balance hardware..."
Disappointing title, as Writing Solid Code from 1993 was such a great (and aptly titled) book.
Better books IMHO:
* Code Complete 2 by Steve McConnell
* Rapid Development by Steve McConnell
* Secure Coding by Mark C. Graff and Kenneth R. van Wyk
* Writing Solid Code by Steve Maguire (uses only C however)
* Pragmatic Programmer by Andrew Hunt, David Thomas
See for yourself, hopefully at your library or bookstore.
For experienced developers, might I suggest coffee or something to keep you awake for some of the chapters; very dry.
There are many generalities, not very specific details, on the things they tell you to do.
If you already know Viso and some of the other 3rd party tools, you can skip several paragraphs in many of the chapters.
Overall it was a good book that went over the basics of what a good programmer needs to do to help write better code. An experienced programmer might not get too much information from this book because its focus is very broad.
