I've become somewhat wary of "how to be a better programmer" type books in recent years. I really want to become a better programmer, but I've been doing this for over a decade and it's gotten to a point where every book I pick up feels like rehashin ...more

Clear rating
A lot of authors seem think they can gather together what is essentially a ton of short blog posts and compile them into a book that will become as noteworthy and reference-able as The Pragmatic Programmer. Maybe The Pragmatic Programmer is also real ...more

UPDATE: Given what has happened with Patton's wife since I wrote this review, it all seems a bit petty now. I'm only leaving it here because there are a few comments, and if I delete it they won't make sense. TL;DR of the review: I wound up reading t ...more

This is just about the most you could expect from a book about Docker. It's far, far better than the documentation, it talks about best principles and practices, and every single suggestion is accompanied by detailed commands to type to accomplish th ...more
