About the Book
Significant chunks of software engineering consist of making a computer understand an idea you've had. This isn't always writing code. Sometimes it's pressing alt-tab fifteen times to find the window you want. Other times it's browsing
man find for the hundredth time. Yet other times the problem is not even the translation into computer-speak - it's formulating intentions clearly enough to qualify for translation at all. This book walks through the major components of a well-built development environment, aiming to also provide general techniques applicable to any technology.
About the Author
Zoltán - or Abesto, if you're online or don't like accents - is irrationally excited about cool and crazy technologies like Haskell, the Fish shell, and Spacemacs. His super-power is producing results with a keyboard that befuddle the other half of the pair-programming pair. "How did you make that function go down there and extract that variable and run the unit tests and commit with three keypresses?" - "C-c M-c M-butterfly" - "I saw you press
t!" - "Colemak".
