Read and download free eBook intituled 500 Lines or Less: Experienced Programmers Solve Interesting Problems in format – 478 pages created by Amy Brown, Greg Wilson.
As we pointed out in The Architecture of Open Source Applications, architects look at thousands of buildings during their training, and study the critiques of many more. But most software developers only ever get to know a handful of programs well – usually programs they wrote themselves.
This book provides you with the chance to study how 26 experienced programmers think when they are building something new. The programs you will read about in this book were all written from scratch to solve difficult problems. A web server, a pedometer, a Python interpreter, a web-based spreadsheet, and many more applications are written, in 500 lines of code or less, and described by their creators so that you can learn from their insights and their mistakes.
It focuses on the design decisions that programmers make in the small when they are building something new. The programs you will read about in this book were all written from scratch for this purpose (although several of them were inspired by larger projects that the authors had worked on previously).
