May 25th, 2021 update

Alright, Part III: Phronesis is a big crunch, friends. Some of these chapters are taking two or three drafts to tie into something neat. I'm going to need some more time on this. I've also extended the wrap up time I'll need towards the end of the book-writing process where I'll go through, re-read, and rewrite all of the chapters for clarity.

  • Part I — Up To Speed — Complete
  • Part II — Humans & Code — Complete
  • Part III — Phronesis by May 28th
  • Part IV — Test-Driven Development Basics by June 2nd
  • Part V — Object-Oriented Design w/ Tests by June 16th
  • Part VI — Design Principles by June 27th
  • Part VII — Design Patterns by July 2nd
  • Part VIII — Architecture Essentials by July 11th
