The Pragmatic Programmer by David Thomas and Andrew Hunt has somehow eluded me throughout a 4-year coding/business analysis/project management education, as well as a 2-year programming position.
During my short time in the field, I have done the research and discussion that all programmers must do on the job. Oftentimes I apply this 'gathered knowledge' and move on, and find myself looking back wondering "How did I do that again?".
Long story short, I am reading The Pragmatic Programmer and documenting the process in a 'One Man Book Club' to not only learn and understand the content of the book, but to practice documenting my understanding, interpretation, and feelings during the process.
As an avid CodeNewbie podcast listener, I was instantly excited when I noticed the foreword was written by Saron!
