More Geek Books

A couple more good Geek books:
  • The Art of Unix Programming by Eric Steven Raymond. A very interesting look into not only how good Unix programs are written, but also insight into the mindset of Unix programmers. Almost all the points within apply to Windows programmers as well. The central Unix programming concept of writing a small program that does One Thing Really Well is something which ought to be stamped on every developer's forehead.
  • Secure Coding: Principles & Practices by Mark G. Graff, Kenneth R. van Wyk. Another book that beats home the need to address software security concerns throughout the entire lifecycle. Good general practices and case studies are part of each chapter.
Both books are available at Safari Books Online.
