CS Table: "How to program in the real world"

At this week's Computer Science Table (at noon on Friday, October 18, in Rosenfield 224A), we will read a variety of 'blog posts about programming in the real world. The readings were suggested by our alumna Eryn O'Neil 2007. Eryn writes:

Here is her list of suggested readings:

And, as a bonus (Eryn: I recommend skimming, not reading, but it's a classic):

  • Green, Roedy. How to write unmaintable code: ensure a job for life ;-). The hacker's choice, October 29, 2006.
