Uncle Bob at Hacksummit 2016: Advice for developers

 

Thank you Pluralsight for giving me an opportunity to attend the HackSummit 2016.

 

A Virtual Event for Developers Presented by Pluralsight –  (@pluralsight)

 

The idea behind hacksummit  is

 “All ticket sales go towards an alliance of programming non-profits.”  

 

The best talk (Fireside chat) that I liked was by   BOB MARTIN (Created the Software Craftsmanship Movement).

 

@unclebobmartin gave some nice advice for developers at #hacksummit

1) do what you love doing

2) keep learning, no matter what technology comes

3) keep reading books as much as you can

4) 40 hours for employer and 20hours for yourself per week

5) invest a lot of time for yourself

6) learn, practice, exercise

7) learn how to use a calendar, set your goals

 

Some of the Books recommended by him during the talk which he showed it to the audience were

1) structured programming

2) The art of computer programming

3) Design pattern by Eric Gamma

4) Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs(download)

5) Clean Code

 

“You should as a programmer, make it your goal to go home every day proud of what you did that day and the way you did. Because you did it in a way that was ethical in principle and to the standard. That’s what your life or your career’s goal anyway.” ~ Uncle Bob
