Congratulations on finishing your four-year computer science degree in two years with no actual practical software development experience or attending your coding bootcamp!But there are a few more things you should know. And there are a few more things you should read. Code Complete: A Practical Handbook of Software Construction, Second Edition. You learned how to code and all, but did you learn when to code and what to code? Moreover, there are a number of things that you should probably know (like why Booleans may not make great status variables). While there is some dust even on the second edition, there is gold here. The Mythical Man-Month. Most problems that will happen on your first professional software project are explained in this book. Read it before your first job, but don’t quote it to people (enough people do that, and it just comes off as smug). I suppose you could also just read the complete works of Dilbert, but MMMis shorter. The Pragmatic Programmer: … [Read more...] about 7 books you must read to be a real software developer
Every software development organization today seems to practice the agile software development methodology, or a version of it. Or at least they believe they do. Whether you are new to application development or learned about software development decades ago using the waterfall software development methodology, today your work is at least influenced by the agile methodology.But what exactly is agile methodology, and how should it be practiced in software development?Agile was formally launched in 2001 when 17 technologists drafted the Agile Manifesto. They wrote four major principles for developing better software: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan Before agile: The era of waterfall methodologyOld hands like me remember the days when the waterfall methodology was the gold standard for software development. The … [Read more...] about What is agile methodology? Modern software development explained

The Linux Foundation is experience some pretty healthy growth recently, and NVIDIA is among the last couple of companies to join it. Why is this important for mobile devices you might wonder? The connection is not immediately obvious, but we've seen attempts to port various distros to existing tablets, and some of those attempts were successful. We should also mention that Linux and its kernel are in close ties with mobile operating systems like Android and others in development like Mozilla’s Boot to Gecko. Additionally, this gives the hope that Nvidia could bring native drivers for Linux boxes, but what’s particularly exciting is that this could easily translate to phones and other mobile gadgets. Ubuntu for Android is one distribution taking the mobile industry seriously and could possibly benefit from Nvidia’s participation in the Linux Foundation.Previously, users had to reverse-engineer Nvidia’s creations in order to get them to work … [Read more...] about Nvidia joins Linux Foundation, is there hope for driver development?
