He personally decided to read 27 software development books before October 2007. I don't see how he could possibly absorb everything by reading that fast. But the idea of another technique to become a better developer appealed to me. I consider myself a professional and am always trying to improve my skills. Unfortunately, since I'm not a popular tech blogger, there is no one to tag me. So I'm going to go ahead and tag myself :-)
Here are the things I'm going to do in the next six months to become a better developer:
- I'm currently reading Code Complete and Head First Object Oriented Analysis and Design.
- I am committed to finishing them in the next six months.
- I've always wanted to create games, but never got much past Pong. I'd always start on something and never finished it. This time I just started on a simple space shooting game and I'm going to see it through.
As for tagging, I'm picking:
- Brian Whittington
- Matt Dyar
- Angela Free
- Eric Sansom
Update: I've added a new post with the responses it've gotten back.
