Software Books

I’ve written all of one book on software development, and contributed chapters to a dozen others. They are less boring than you might think. OK, make that slightly less boring. And if you’re wondering why I haven’t bothered including Amazon links with these, there are a number of reasons for this:

  1. Most of the books are way out of date. I mean, DCOM FFS?
  2. The links to them on my business site have so far earned me £6.92, or to put it another way, £0, since this amount is way below Amazon’s threshold for paying out.
  3. Some of the reader comments on Professional DCOM Application Development are gob-smackingly stupid.

Nice pics, though, aren’t they? After you’ve seen these, you might like to try this quiz, where you can guess who are the software pioneers and who are the serial killers. Not as easy as you might think.
