For twenty years, the lessons from The Pragmatic Programmer have helped a generation of programmers examine the very essence of software development, independent of any particular language, framework, or methodology. This classic title is regularly featured on "Top Ten" lists, and many corporations issue it to their new hires.

Featuring new tips, new topics, and revisions throughout, you don't want to miss this one.
Andy and Dave wrote this influential, classic book to help their clients create better software and rediscover the joy of coding. Almost twenty years later, its advice is still spot on, and the Pragmatic philosophy has spawned hundreds of books, screencasts, and audio books, as well as thousands of careers and success stories.
This new edition examines the core of modern software development - understanding what is wanted and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users.
