Dear All,

Book Review: CODE Reading -- The Open Source Perspective

As a software developer most of the time, we spend adding new features
or functionalities in the existing code, written by somebody else. I
realized this after I joined Industry. Till date I hardly written any
code from scratch completely after I entered corporate environment. In
schools, colleges and Universities, all they teach us is how to code
using programming languages like C, C++ etc. Nobody teach us how to
read other's code. Infact that is what more important in a practical
point of view.

The following book which I am reading right now for the last 2 days,
is exactly teaches us How to read other's code? I should say, all the
software developers must learn this art. So if you find the time, go
and get a copy of this book and read it by all means.

CODE Reading
The Open Source Perspective


Diomidis Spinellis

ISBN: 0-201-79940-5
Addison Wesley/Pearson Education, 2003.

The author uses numerous real world examples to show us how to
identify good & bad code: how to read it, what to look for, and how to
use this knowledge to improve our own code.

Judgement: It is worth spending time to read this book in its entirety.
