Code Complete : A Practical Handbook of Software Costruction Paperback



Widely considered one of the best practical guides to programming, Steve McConnell's original CODE COMPLETE has been helping developers write better software for more than a decade.

Now this classic book has been fully updated and revised with leading-edge practices-and hundreds of new code samples-illustrating the art and science of software construction.

Capturing the body of knowledge available from research, academia, and everyday commercial practice, McConnell synthesizes the most effective techniques and must-know principles into clear, pragmatic guidance.

No matter what your experience level, development environment, or project size, this book will inform and stimulate your thinking-and help you build the highest quality code. Discover the timeless techniques and strategies that help you: * Design for minimum complexity and maximum creativity * Reap the benefits of collaborative development * Apply defensive programming techniques to reduce and flush out errors * Exploit opportunities to refactor-or evolve-code, and do it safely * Use construction practices that are right-weight for your project * Debug problems quickly and effectively * Resolve critical construction issues early and correctly * Build quality into the beginning, middle, and end of your project
