I remember when Dave and Andy first tweeted about the new edition of this book. It was big news. I watched as the coding community responded with excitement. My feed buzzed with anticipation. After twenty years, The Pragmatic Programmer is just as relevant today as it was back then.
It says a lot that a book with such history had such a reaction. I had the privilege of reading an unreleased copy to write this foreword, and I understood why it created such a stir. While it’s a technical book, calling it that does it a disservice. Technical books often intimidate. They’re stuffed with big words, obscure terms, convoluted examples that, unintentionally, make you feel stupid. The more experienced the author, the easier it is to forget what it’s like to learn new concepts, to be a beginner.
Despite their decades of programming experience, Dave and Andy have conquered the difficult challenge of writing with the same excitement of people who’ve just learned these lessons. They don’t talk down to you. They don’t assume you are an expert. They don’t even assume you’ve read the first edition. They take you as you are—programmers who just want to be better. They spend the pages of this book helping you get there, one actionable step at a time.
