Publications We Love: A Philosophy of Software Design
A small book with an outsized impact since it’s publishing, PoSD fundamentally addresses how to manage complexity. Drawing from both deep industry and academic experience, John Ousterhout of Stanford (and the TCL language) distills design principles into pithy commands. We’ll compare his principles with our own experiences, and also with Ousterhout’s other statements on these subjects (containing vital background to understanding how he arrived at the PoSD principles).
