Product Details


Praise for the first edition of Write Great Code, Volume 2:

“Set aside some money and buy this book, or get a friend to buy it and get it from them while still in the store. When you get home, read it TWICE so that you master what is in these pages. Then read it again.”

Write Great Code Volume 2 exceeds its goal of helping developers pay more attention to application performance when writing applications in high-level languages. This book is a must for any high-level application developer.
—Free Software Magazine

“As a high-level-language programmer, if you want to know what’s really going on with your programs, you need to spend a little time learning assembly language—and you won’t find an easier introduction.”

“This is a good book. A very very good book. Frankly, I’m blown away at the quality of writing.”
—Toronto Ruby User Group
