Serious developers know that code can always be improved. With each iteration, you make optimizations - small and large - that can have a huge impact on your application's speed, size, resilience, and maintainability.

In Seriously Good Software: Code that Works, Survives, and Wins, author, teacher, and Java expert Marco Faella teaches you techniques for writing better code. You'll start with a simple application and follow it through seven careful refactorings, each designed to explore another dimension of quality.

Great code blends the skill of a programmer with the time-tested techniques and best practices embraced by the entire development community. Although each application has its own context and character, some dimensions of quality are always important. This book concentrates on eight pillars of seriously good software: speed, memory usage, reliability, readability, thread safety, generality, and elegance. The Java-based examples demonstrate techniques that apply to any OO language.

Seriously Good Software is a handbook for any professional developer serious about improving application quality. It explores fundamental dimensions of code quality by enhancing a simple implementation into a robust, professional-quality application. Questions, exercises, and Java-based examples ensure you'll get a firm grasp of the concepts as you go. When you finish the last version of the book's central project, you'll be able to confidently choose the right optimizations for your code.
