A discipline of programming Edsger W. Dijkstra
Publisher: Prentice Hall, Inc.

Great programming is a discipline. What I write about computer programming applies to other fields of problem solving, such as engineering and mathematics. Dijkstra's 1976 book, A Discipline of Programming, explains a design process which is very clearly the origin of both TDD and Design by Contract. And in fact, some of these disciplines are diametric. A Discipline of Programming (Prentice-Hall Series in Automatic Computation) By E. There are a number of skills an intern has to posses in order to apply: 1) Have a great portfolio. If you are feeling scholarly, Edsger W. In the first of two blogs, Ajit Jaokar, co-founder of feynlabs, shares five of his ten steps for the radical transformation of how we teach kids software programming. One way to get rid of warnings from your code is to pay attention to the warnings and fix the code. Dijkstra talks about this problem in detail in one of my favorite books, "A discipline of programming." Also, here's an article with a surprisingly simple recursive solution: http://nicolas-lara.blogspot.com/2009/01/permutations. Unknown November 13, 2011 at 10:29 AM. Experienced programmers will tell you that ignoring warnings is a bad practice. The sole justification for discipline in software development and maintenance, is that it as it prevents defects. 2) Be adept at your discipline (Game design, Marketing, Programming (C#), 2d/3d art, analytics). That being said, to continue with jslade's analogy, there are different disciplines in programming (just as there are in ninjutsu, and in sports). I've done both and I think it is unfair. Programming is a discipline, a discipline that is often undermined and taken lightly. Dijkstra * Publisher: Prentice Hall, Inc. IMHO, the closer you are to the money, the more you make. To understand the concept of "mastery" in a discipline, recognizing that even if mastery is not achieved, there is still value in learning programming; To co-relate programming with other math and science disciplines at an early stage, e.g.
