A Philosophy of Software Design

Read in Apr 2021
Book by John Ousterhout

I try my best to write a short summary/review of the books I read, and this is one of them. I typically publish them on Goodreads, but also sync them to here.

This is a good compilation of lessons in building good software, likely many of which you've heard under other, idiosyncratic names in the occasional Hacker News post. The author's put names on a few things I watch out for, but never put a name to. Nothing remarkable, but an easy, nice read that's a good refresher for anyone who writes software.
