Speaking of software development...
there is a book entitled, "Code Complete..." My copy is in a client's
office or I would provide the full title. Anyway, a few years back it
was recommended here, I think by Karsten Self. It is just full of all
kinds of information, tables, and lists, all to do with the
"construction" of software projects. Every time I refer to the book I
am simply amazed to think that anyone could produce such an effective,
detailed, voluminous book about such a problematic issue.
The book was well worth the price.
