  • Two books on Collective Intelligence

    I needed an introduction to the topic of collective intelligence. My hope was to find some books offering a clear overview of the main algorithms and a good amount of examples, using data collected throught the various public APIs available. The two books I’ve read are Algorithms of the Intelligent Web (published by Manning) and ...

  • Book: The Art of Unit Testing

    I had the chance to review this book, which will soon be published by Manning. Roy Osherove did a really good writing job. You'll find in this book all you need to quickly get up and running with unit testing. I've enjoyed the chapter on test code organization and refactoring; and the one on making your team/company embrace unit testing. ...

  • Book: jQuery In Action

    I'm sure you already know about this good move. Since jQuery will ship with Visual Studio, I took the time to read a book on the subject. jQuery In Action is published by Manning and is a really good book. It goes deep into the library and does a nice job of explaining its clever and powerful API. There are a lot of examples and two ...

  • Book: Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership and Role Management

It's written by Stefan Shackow, a program manager on the Web Platform and Tools team at Microsoft. What the book covers:Security processing for web requestsTrust levels and security configuration for ASP.NET applicationsForms ...

    Freakonomics [Revised and Expanded]: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything: Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J.

  • Book: Working Effectively With Legacy Code

    Working Effectively with Legacy Code (Robert C. Martin Series): Michael Feathers: Books I've just finished the above book, which was recommended to me by Jeffrey Palermo a few months ago.  It is one of the most useful software development books I've read since Code Complete.  I wish I'd read it years ago, and I'm finding myself ...

  • Book - Cryptonomicon

    One of the things I want to blog about periodically is what I've been reading, and a few of the things I've read lately have actually not been about software development (which is a good thing, if somewhat rare the last few years).  One book I finished last year is the Neil Stephenson's Cryptonomicon: Cryptonomicon This was a wonderful, ...

  • Book Recommended To Me

    I just ordered this book on the recommendation of a couple of MVC people: Working Effectively with Legacy Code (Robert C. Martin Series) Also testing out RoyO's Amazoner tool, which appears to have worked correctly.  Nice!  What is Amazoner? Amazoner was designed to make one thing very easy if you're a blog writer who's also an ...

  • Money For Content - Book

    I've been reading a ton of books, as usual, lately.  The interesting thing, to me at least, is that I'm actually trying to make time to read some books that aren't technical, which is quite refreshing.  For a while there, I was in ''keep up with everything coming out'' mode and so I went a long while without reading any fiction or ...
