Cameron asked about:
There is no good single book that I can recommend however there are
several that taken together make up a good base.
1st I'd go with something like Programming Pearls by Jon Bentley
it covers design in the small - algorithms etc
2nd I'd do something like The Pragmatic Programmer which has lots
of good advise generally learnt the hard way.
3rd I'd get a good OO design book like Booch OOAD or maybe
Wirfs/Brock(sp?) "Responsibility Driven Design"
4th I'd get the "Gang of Four"(GoF) Design Patterns book.
5th I'd buy my new book on design notations
- except I haven't finished writing it yet ;-)
Search the net, read up on basic computer operating principles and
networking. One good (but occasionally wacky!) site that I visit
But then I'm biased coz Matt Curtin is a friend of mine...
