There’s Still No Silver Bullet

I read this in hopes that it would mag­i­cal­ly make me a bet­ter devel­op­er, but alas, there is no sil­ver bullet.

The arti­cles were inter­est­ing and some of the mate­r­i­al is applic­a­ble to the kind of work I do, but most of the book real­ly is aimed at plan­ners of large-scale projects involv­ing thou­sands of pro­gram­mers. «Scal­ing down» to mod­u­lar 10-per­son teams does­n’t help when you’re push­ing to get a third part-timer on your team.

Nev­er­the­less, this book is bet­ter read than not, and I sus­pect that I’ll be refer­ring back to it from time to time, espe­cial­ly if I get the chance to move on to larg­er-scale projects.
