Many software projects get delivered late, if at all. Why? Because we programmers waste a lot of time and energy. We also put our health at risk for repetitive strain injuries (or RSI) without being aware of it. Pain in the hands, wrists, forearms, neck and shoulders is common among programmers. I struggled with RSI for a year and half and finally managed to recover. And that’s what inspired me to write this book: to share what I’ve learned over 14 years of my professional experience to help you:
• Become a better and more productive programmer
• Write better code in less time
• Maintain your mental and physical health
In particular, you’ll learn:
• Common productivity killers amongst programmers
• Real world examples of successes and failures
• Simple tips that you can apply immediately to increase your productivity
• Techniques to stay focused and minimize distractions
• Ergonomics, posture, and exercises to prevent injuries at work or reduce your pain if you’re already suffering
• How to build better relationships with your employer and coworkers
The Blueprint for a Productive Programmer is a short, easy read with pragmatic suggestions that will be useful regardless of the platform you use and your level of experience. Whether you’re a pro with years of experience or just starting out in the field, you’ll benefit from these tips. Reading this book may take less than one hour of your time, but will save you months and years of frustration.
