Steve’s Recent Updates

“the road to programming hell is paved with global variables,”
Steve McConnell, Code Complete

“Programmers working with high-level languages achieve better productivity and quality than those working with lower-level languages. Languages such as C++, Java, Smalltalk, and Visual Basic have been credited with improving productivity, reliability, simplicity, and comprehensibility by factors of 5 to 15 over low-level languages such as assembly and C (Brooks 1987, Jones 1998, Boehm 2000). You save time when you don't need to have an awards ceremony every time a C statement does what it's supposed to.”
Steve McConnell, Code Complete

“The big optimizations come from refining the high-level design, not the individual routines.”
Steve McConnell, Code Complete
