Preface > Who This Book Is For

Who This Book Is For

This isn’t a book for end users who want to use their computers more effectively. It’s a book about programmer productivity, which means I can make a lot of assumptions about the audience. Developers are the ultimate power users, so I don’t spend a lot of time on basic stuff. A tech-savvy user should certainly learn something (especially in Part I), but the target remains developers.

There is no explicit order to this book, so feel free to wander around as you like or read it front to back. The only connections between the topics appear in unexpected ways, so reading it front to back may have a slight advantage, but not enough to suggest that’s the only way to consume this book.
