This Developer's Life 1.0.6 - Abstraction
In this episode of This Developer's Life, Rob and I discuss “what you need to know” as a software developer. How many layers of abstraction do you need to understand? How many geek trading cards should you have in your collection? To find out more, we talked to three prominent, living-history developers:
- Ward Cunningham - creator of the Wiki and major figure in Agile/XP programming
- Charles Petzold - author of many books about Windows and prominent speaker
- Dan Bricklin - “Superman” according to Scott. Creator of the spreadsheet and all around amazing guy.
