Exercises in Programming Style by Cristina Videira Lopes

Exercises in Programming Style by Cristina Videira Lopes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An easily consumed, enjoyable read, and excellent review of the history of programming style, from older days of constrained memory and monolithic styles, through pipelining and object-oriented variants, to more recent patterns like model-view-controller (MVC), mapreduce, and representational state transfer (ReST). Along the way, each variant is described, along with its constraints, its history, and its context in systems design.
