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.
