Coder to Developer: Tools and Strategies for Delivering Your by Mike Gunderloy

By Mike Gunderloy

Coder to Developer is helping you excel on the many non-coding projects entailed, from begin to end, in precisely approximately any winning improvement venture. What's extra, it equips you with the mind-set and self-assurance required to drag all of it jointly, so you see every bit of your paintings as a part of a coherent procedure. inside of, you'll locate lots of technical information on such subject matters as:

Choosing and utilizing a resource code regulate system

Code iteration tools--when and why

Preventing insects with unit testing

Tracking, solving, and studying from bugs

Application task logging

Streamlining and systematizing the construct process

Traditional installations and replacement approaches

To pull all of this jointly, the writer has supplied the resource code for obtain Tracker, a device for organizing your number of downloaded code, that's used for examples all through this publication. The code is equipped in a number of states final touch, reflecting each degree of improvement, so you might dig deep into the particular means of development software program. yet you'll additionally enhance "softer" abilities, in parts similar to crew administration, open resource collaboration, consumer and developer documentation, and highbrow estate security. that will develop into anyone who can convey not only reliable code but in addition an outstanding product, this publication is where to begin. in the event you needs to construct profitable software program initiatives, it's crucial interpreting.

Looks a lot stupider after some sleep, and you’re faced with ripping out all that code you wrote last night. For these reasons, and many others, any serious software project must use source code control. The Three Levels of Source Code Control Enlightenment Most developers start out writing code without any sort of source code control, except perhaps for making occasional backups of an entire directory of stuff. But gradually, most of us realize that having a tool help keep track of code changes and prevent code loss is a good idea.

It’s so difficult that almost no one does it well, despite the fact that as an industry we have over 60 years’ experience in trying to predict how long it will take to write applications. Still, if you’re trying to allocate resources and finish a product, you’ve got to come up with a schedule. Most of what you’ll find written about scheduling software projects is aimed at people building very large applications that involve thousands of requirements and large teams of developers (the classic work here is Fred Brooks’ excellent The Mythical Man-Month, 2nd edition, Addison-Wesley, 1995).
