Great technology history audiobook: "Open: How Compaq Ended IBM's PC Domination and Helped Invent Modern Computing"

I never realized the role Compaq had played during those first years of the Personal Computer. The PC market could have turned out entirely different if either IBM or Compaq would have taken different decisions during that period.

An interesting read / listen and a throwback to the days of the 80286, 80386 and 80486 computers.

I finally started reading "Clean Code - A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship"

The book "Clean Code" has been on my reading list for ages. Hearing the extremely experienced "Uncle Bob" speak in London during the New Developers Conference was very inspiring, so it looked like it was worth finally checking out his books. The summer time turned out to be an excellent time to catch up on some reading.

I'll be sure to check out the successor to this book: "The Clean Coder - A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers".
