Now his book, 'Code Complete', has been fully updated and revised with best practices in the art and science of constructing software. Whether you're a new developer seeking a sound introduction to the practice of software development or a veteran exploring strategic new approaches to problem solving, you'll find practical suggestions and methods for strengthening your skills. Topics include design, applying good techniques to construction, eliminating errors, planning, managing construction activities, and relating personal character to superior software. You'll find new code examples in C++, Microsoft(r) Visual Basic(r), C#, and Java, though the focus is squarely on techniques and practices.
