40 Things Every Programmer Should Know
On my website I have started an outline of 40 Things Every Programmer Should Know...But Doesn't. There are eight categories consisting of 5 topics each. Obviously, most programmers will be familiar with some of the topics, and some will be familiar with many, but the hope is that there will be a few nuggets of interest lying in wait for the curious programmer willing to read my "book". The goal is not to have an in depth treatment of each topic, but a high level overview of what it is, when you would use it, and how and why it should make its way into your everyday programming life. I hope to complete one topic each week (or at least a rough draft). Keep checking in for progress reports.
