It is now two weeks to the day from Dreaming in Code’s in-store arrival, and I’m still trying to catch my breath. I’m going to write some fuller posts responding to some of the questions and criticisms I’ve received both in person and online. And I promise I’ll get back to Code Reads soon! Here, first, are a couple of quick pointers to more recent coverage and interesting stuff:
Scott Mace, whose Calendar Swamp blog has been an invaluable resource, interviewed me early on during my media marathon for the Open Source Conversations podcast, and the interview is now available. This was one of the deepest and fullest (and longest!) interviews I’ve done to date; many thanks to Scott for his enthusiasm for the book and his willingness to dig into some of the details.
Paul Kedrosky is both extremely smart and, I tend to think, at the harder-nosed end of the tech-pundit spectrum, so I was delighted to read his post calling Dreaming in Code “excellent.” “Rosenberg’s new book,” he wrote, “is sobering and required reading for anyone naive enough to still expect miracles from large-scale software development.” Thanks, Paul.
