I have a few designs in mind, and I'm getting a lot done on paper. But before I actually put anything into place, I want to step back and do a little summer reading and see if I can't draw upon the wisdom of some experienced programmers before embarking on this journey.
Summer reading list:
I finished Accelerated C++ this week and just started reading Code Complete. The next few blog posts will probably be book reviews and design discussions instead of project status. Hopefully the time I invest now will yield faster, better programming down the line.
