“The Art of Computer Programming” by Donald Knuth
Carl Tashian

I’ve been mentoring developers for quite some time I tell them that very little has changed in software development since the early days when “the greats” like Knuth, Wirth, Dykstra, and others penned their seminal works. Sure, abstractions have been added to make access to data and control structures more seamless, but the underlying technologies remain the same. I wholeheartedly agree with Knuth’s aesthetic sense about programming as the beauty and elegance of software design drew me in those many year ago. The hardware side is similar since we still use the basic Von Neumann architecture that has been scaled up for decades.
