Code monkeys are people too

"Computer programming is taught in courses. The excellent books:

The Pragmatic Programmer[8], Code Complete[3], Rapid Development[2], and

Extreme Programming Explained[4] all teach computer programming and the

larger issues of being a good programmer."

Comprehensive, and Personal Summary

Finally, I feel as part of a group, having read all the aforementioned books. I must admit that Code Complete and Rapid Development were a bit on the cumbersome and dull side, however, they all have been a big help in maturing as a code moneky programmer and seeing the big picture.
