– Why did you do that?
– Fowler (Uncle Bob, Mark Seemann) said this is the best practice.
Very often we can hear and read such conversations. When I was younger I also argued by using names of famous developers such as Uncle Bob or Martin Fowler. There are some considerations regarding this phenomenon I want to talk about today.
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been reading a book of John Sonmez “Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual”. Speaking about the programmer’s career, John said that leading a personal blog is an essential thing for a programmer, in case he wants to be successful. Well, a programmer can succeed without blogging, but it can make the road much easier and pleasant (though, it still requires much efforts, of course).
I almost finished reading a book written by John Sonmez (popular blogger, software developer and author of many pluralsight courses) “Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual”. I should say that this book is extremely easy to read, it’s full of valuable advices and it’s extremely practical. And from time to time it’s fun. There are many interesting sections in the book, but today I’d like to squeeze the most important thoughts from the section dedicated to Productivity.
