5.0 out of 5 stars The bigger picture, 30 Aug 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Psychology of Computer Programming: Silver Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
As programmers and software developers dealing with the details of code construction and software implementation, we often forget keeping an eye on the bigger picture of what we are doing and why. This book reminds you that you are part of a bigger picture, where psychological aspects play a crucial role as well. Especially when you are part of a team, programming must be seen also as a social activity, and not only as an individual activity. This is the part of the book that I liked most. This book should be a compulsory reading for team leaders and managers, who still consider programmers as black boxes where you give orders and code comes out. As already other readers have pointed out, considering the perspective provided by the book, it is amazing how little things have changed from the 70s.
