Equally, every programmer ought to know how a compiler turns text into instructions, how a spreadsheet updates cells, and how a browser decides what to put where when it renders a page. This book’s goal is to give readers that broad-ranging overview, and while doing so, to help them understand how software designers think.”

  1. Java 8 now allows ‘default’ method implementation in Interface. But it somehow managed to prevent multiple inheritance adding compile-time checks.
  2. Tweaking SQLLite to load 864,913 records in 16 seconds!!


  1. Brogrammers are changing programming culture.
