Hacker's DelightDe (autor) Henry S. Warren
en Limba Engleză Hardback – November 2012
In "Hacker s Delight, Second Edition," Hank Warren once again compiles an irresistible collection of programming hacks: timesaving techniques, algorithms, and tricks that help programmers build more elegant and efficient software, while also gaining deeper insights into their craft. Warren s hacks are eminently practical, but they re also intrinsically interesting, and sometimes unexpected, much like the solution to a great puzzle. They are, in a word, a delight to any programmer who is excited by the opportunity to improve.
