Widely considered one of the best practical guides to programming, Steve McConnell’s original CODE COMPLETE has been helping developers write better software for more than a decade. Now this classic book has been fully updated and revised with leading-edge practices—and hundreds of new code samples—illustrating the art and science of software construction. Capturing the body of knowledge available from research, academia, and everyday commercial practice, McConnell synthesizes the most effective techniques and must-know principles into clear, pragmatic guidance. No matter what your experience level, development environment, or project size, this book will inform and stimulate your thinking—and help you build the highest quality code.
Discover the timeless techniques and strategies that help you:

  • Design for minimum complexity and maximum creativity
  • Reap the benefits of collaborative development
  • Apply defensive programming techniques to reduce and flush out errors
  • Exploit opportunities to refactor—or evolve—code, and do it safely

  • Debug problems quickly and effectively
  • Resolve critical construction issues early and correctly
  • Build quality into the beginning, middle, and end of your project

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo worth it I love this book. That is a hard statement to say from a critic like me at times. I have read tons of programming books and this one is my favorite. I really wish there was an additional code complete book by Steve Mcconnell that I could buy as soon as it was printed. It provides great code examples, in depth solutions to coding problems, shows how to improve quality of everything from classes to if statements to how you can write better comments. Fabulous book. I highly recommend it.
