Simple – there will be people I admire. Their ideas had a tremendous influence and cultivated a specialist from me.
Tribute to Michael Feathers
Any improvements into Sitecore was a ‘fix here breaks there‘ roulette due to a lack of safety net harness.
Working Effectively with Legacy Code had all the solutions (practices) to follow. The book shows how to improve tangled code base. I’m proud to say Kernel safety net was developed thanks to Michael.
There are at least three books each developer is recommended to read:
- Working Effectively with Legacy Code
- Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship
- Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code
Tribute to Roy Osherove
The Art of Unit Testing is one of the superlative books explaining TDD and the importance of having self-checking code. I have not met a single person who after reading the book would not write tests.
Tribute to Don Syme
