A couple of months ago, Brad blogged about the FDG book getting into the Jolt Award finals. The winners were just announced and we have won the Productivity Award! I am shocked … that Brad did not blogged this information first! :-)


On that occasion, I looked up some of the past winners of the Productivity Award. These are the classics that shaped my understanding of software design:

  • Design Patterns, by Erich Gamma, et al.
  • Writing Solid Code, by Steve Maguire  
  • Object-Oriented Software Engineering: A Use-Case Driven Approach, by Ivar Jacobson
