Making the world better

(One line of code at a time)

Pete Goodliffe is a programmer, a software development columnist, a musician, and author. He never stays at the same place in the software food chain - his projects range from OS implementation, through audio codecs, to multimedia applications; from embedded firmware, through iOS development, to desktop applications. He has a passion for curry and doesn't wear shoes.

Pete's popular development book Code Craft is a practical and entertaining investigation of the entire programming pursuit. In about 600 pages. No mean feat! It has been translated into many languages. He writes a magazine column called Becoming a Better Programmer, has contributed to several software development books, and regularly speaks on software development topics.

His latest book, also called Becoming a Better Programmer, is available as an early access preview. Find out more details here.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change 
Courage to change the things I can 
And wisdom to know the difference
