When I first saw the email about this JavaRanch promotion, I didn�t pay much attention because I didn�t expect �code craft� would be so good until I read its reader�s reviews. Now I definitely want to get this book no matter I bought it or get it for free. I am sure it will certainly help me to write excellent code. Thank you, Peter!

One of mine friend once told me: "Software engineering is, after all, just like crafting a pieces of art", do you agree?

Thanks for the kind words, I hope you'll enjoy reading the book, and will find it genuinely useful!

Is software development an art form? Is it a science? Is it a craft? It is engineering? It's all of them and none of them! Google will quickly show you countless debates and opinions about this topic.

We talk about "computer science", about "software engineering" and now... about "Code Craft".

These are all metaphors that are useful to help you think about what you do when you craft pieces of code. But none of them tell you exactly what programming is.
