Review of 'The Pragmatic Programmer' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

O livro irá focar na filosofia de vida de um desenvolvedor. Não é um livro que te ensinará técnicas de desenvolvimento, mas te dará insights muitos valiosos para sua vida profissional. Um que eu já conhecia era o "Don’t live a broken window" que é a filosofia de sempre consertar os erros que são visiveis em um projeto. Quanto mais erros em um projeto, mais a moral do time vai ser abalada e mais erros o time gerará. Recomendado!!
