Software Design X-Rays by Adam Tornhill

This is a book about how to detect bad code from code base with the help of code's history from git. I was surprised how simple things and techniques book uncovered about code quality. The key point is the time. We shouldn't do just static analysis from our current code but analyze how our code has lived and progressed. Tornhill calls this behavioral code analysis.

I will explain some interesting things from the book, like hotspot analysis and what are surprises in code and why they can be really expensive. After reading the book I understood how to improve code quality cost-effectively.

The Clean Coder by Robert C. Martin

I wrote a book review of The Clean Coder by Robert C. Martin ("Uncle Bob"). It tells what makes programmer a professional programmer and gives practical advice. Professional programmer takes responsibility for his/her work and improves himself/herself constantly. Someone who cares about his/her career as a programmer. The book is relatively short (210 pages) and easy to read. I recommend it to all software developers. My rating: 4/5.
