Hi

Has anyone read the The Pragmatic Programmer by A Hunt & D Thomas? Is it useful for Programmers?

Any suggestions on other similar books which are good to read?

Thanks in advance

Yes - excellent book!

I don't know how similar you'd call it, but I recommend "The Mythical Man Month."

Hi!
I've just finished reading this book! This book made me rethink how we get lost among many methologies or process in software development while what realy matters is the code quality. I am not saying methology is not important, however I do not observe that companies give the attention coding really deserves. Very practical book! I recommend it!
Have fun!
