Make Smarter - Smelly Code, Stop Sucking, Software on a Deadline, the Best JavaScript Book EVER

This month’s make smarter brings you slide decks galore!

First up is Crafting Software on Impossible Deadlines by Christopher Groskoph (@onyxfish). Imagine shipping software in 2 hours flat! One of the top things you need: a team style guide. I need to get one of those.



Does your code smell? This presentation by Brandon Keepers helps you understand why your code smells and what to do about it.



Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror and Stack Overflow fame brings you How to Stop Sucking and be Awesome Instead.



And finally, if you want a fantastic JavaScript book, check out Douglas Crockford’s JavaScript: The Good Parts. It is succinct (100 print pages), practical, and contains insights I haven’t gotten after years of JavaScript hacking. If you’re a JavaScript coder, this book is a must-have resource. The fact that it’s only $13 is icing on the cake.
