This week on the Technometria Podcast, I interview Kevlin Henney, the editor of the book 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know. I really enjoyed reading this book and I enjoyed the conversation with Kevlin. One of the things that struck me is that there's so much wisdom here that we just don't teach people. Rather, we expect them to pick it up as they go along. I heartily recommend the book (and the podcast) to beginning programmers and old-hands alike. The book's Web page has copies of the contributions that made it into the book and also the one's that didn't, so pop over and see for yourself.
