4.0 étoiles sur 5 A valuable read 25 décembre 2005

Forget about the spectre of "offshoring" for a second: this book is about what you need to do to be a better software professional. On the flip side, this book can also be used as a guide on how to _hire_ good programmers. Each chapter is about 2 to 3 pages long and presents anecdotal information about how to make yourself a better programmer _and_ business person.

I would say that most of his advice really falls into one of these categories: constantly improve yourself, constantly seek to improve others, and be knowledgeable of your business and customers.

There are valuable tidbits in here that are common sense to some, but I am amazed with how many people I know that don't follow them. Even if they are all common sense this book helps these ideas crystallize in your psyche. Here are some of my favorites:

#7 Don't base your career on one technology: for example Java, Lotus Notes, etc.

#8 Be the worst. Surrounding yourself with really good people is a lot better way to learn than being the best. I agree with this.

#9 Love it or leave it. The people I like to work with the most are the people with passion for what they do. They are the ones that are constantly seeking to do things the right way. They are the ones who are innovating.

The reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is that towards the end I thought the last several chapters were kind of fluffy and didn't provide any concrete advise. But overall, I think this book is very good.

This book was a much needed wakeup call with respect to the realities of software engineering and the international market for those skills. We all understand that international competition is driving businesses to reduce costs by outsourcing software engineering projects, but few U.S. software engineers have a plan for countering the effects of this outsourcing. Chad Fowler's first hand experience managing outsourcing teams in India allows him to provide a unique cultural and professional perspective with the survival techniques needed by U.S. software engineers. From the content of this book, it is apparent that Chad Fowler is experienced, current and knowledgeable in the magical and demanding art of software engineering management. This book provides 52 bullets of behaviors/practices for evolving into the "best of the best" in order to insulate yourself from the impacts of outsourcing - and he justifies each of these with real world examples. This book is a great companion to the masterpiece book "Pragmatic Programmer" by Hunt and Thomas, which addresses the craft of software engineering with equally convincing justifications and examples.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A good self-improvement manual for programmers... but please ignore the title 12 janvier 2006

Like a lot of the other reviewers, I agreed with the contents of this book. The contents are well-organized and presented, and all of the points are hard to argue with. However, some caution is in order.

This book is only tangentially about outsourcing. The title of the book implies this book is how one can thward the challenge of outsourcing. Now, the contents of the book are an ably-crafted, well-written set of tips on how to increase one's effectiveness as a programmer, which I would have no hesitation of recommending to programmers of just a few years' experience. So one might guess that the thrust of the book is: "If you are an able enough programmer, both from a technical and the business sense, you need not feel threatened by outsourcing." Unfortunately, the author didn't address this connection, at least not strongly enough to make an impression on me. And I bought the book because I wanted characterization specifically of outsourcing as a job threat, rather than just another force in a tighter labor market.

In short, if you are an entry-level, or even intermediate-level programmer this book has a lot to recommend it. However, I have to dock this book by a point because it really do what it says it sets out to do. Had it been titled "How to improve your programming in 52 steps" I would've given it 4 or 5 starts. But as an old hand, I also wouldn't have bought it either.

I just graduated from college and started working as a developer for a software company. Life in college is very different from professional life. I felt a little lost and wasn't sure how to manage my time at work and outside of work. I wasn't sure about how the world works outside of college. This book gave me some good advice and guidance. It is also a fun read and contains some useful facts and moral lessons.

I am glad to run into this book. I like its comprehensible and friendly tone. It is like a wand. I believe it helped me greatly to reconsider many things I have been thinking about and reevaluate my priorities. I would frankly recommend the book to read thru and get back to its chapters on regular basis.
