In this book, Christoph shows how to take lessons from the programming and marketing world to better your life.
From the title, you might think this is just a self-help book. It is not. Christoph spends most of the book describing the programming or marketing concepts that you need to understand his suggestions to improve yourself.
This book covers a lot of programming and marketing history from somebody who has been there and done that. Anybody who is interested in software engineering and/or marketing would get a lot out of this book.
The book is part historical account, part forward thinking (lots of references to the "Internet of Things to Come) and part champion of the sometimes-maligned/mocked computer programmer.
The book is written with programmers in mind, but even non programmers can get some good insight into the evolution of coding and how software coders have a dramatic effect on our daily lives. Spaghetti Code also provides great examples of problem solving tactics that coding engineers employ to make computers address real world issues - examples that can have application and purpose to those of us who don't know coding at all, but still have to solve problems in our lives.
As someone who grew up in the same era as Christoph, the book is an enjoyable read that gives reason to pause and marvel at how much our lives have been transformed by the emergence of computers, mobile devices, smartphones, voice assistants, smart refrigerators - even our computer-infused cars. Christoph celebrates the people and innovations that have happened since those first archaic PC devices hit the market in the early 1980s.
