a good book for me RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    Well, now I have grown in my company and I will have a few more responsabilities, I will be project leader of small projects, and I would like to ask you for a good book for me. Perhaps one about methodology, agile or XP, about team system, or perhaps about enterprise patterns or something.

    Well, waiting for your suggestions

    Thanks in advance.

  • Here are some I'd recommend, all of them excellent books, on some of the topics you mention:

    • Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture, by Martin Fowler
    • Refactoring, by Martin Fowler
    • The pragmatic programmer, by Andrw Hunt and David Thomas
    • Professional Software Development, by Steve McConnell
    • Agile Software Development, by Alistair Cockburn
    • Beyond Software Architecture, by Luke Hohmann
    It's hard being more specific without some more details about what your new role are and what you want to learn more specifically, but all of the above are pretty good.

  • well, i think i want one about patterns. I am between Fowler´s one and Head First one (I am a bit embarrasing writting this, i am not interested in the cover´s girl).

    It is possible to read fowler's cover to cover? some books are, as we say in Spanish, a brick, so they are impossible to read completely.

  • Both the Martin Fowler books I mentioned are very readable and engaging, and it's very possible to read them cover-to-cover (I did read that way both of them).

  • I want to recommend you a similar book about architecture patterns, but with a plus: .NET implementation of all of them

    Enterprise Solution Patterns Using Microsoft .NET

     

    Hope it helps
