Overview

In a perfect world, software engineers who produce the best code are the most successful. But in our perfectly messy world, success also depends on how you work with people to get your job done. In this highly entertaining book, Brian Fitzpatrick and Ben Collins-Sussman cover basic patterns and anti-patterns for working with other people, teams, and users while trying to develop software. This is valuable information from two respected software engineers whose popular series of talks—including "Working with Poisonous People"—has attracted hundreds of thousands of followers.

Enjoyable, non dogmatic and packed with interesting and relevant anecdotes. There are no earth shaking revelations in "Team Geek" but it is a worthwhile read for anyone who is a programmer or works with programmers. It is a quick and fun read. Highly recommended.
