Welcome to the home page for the 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know project, pearls of wisdom for programmers collected from leading practitioners. You can read through the Contributions Appearing in the Book plus the Other Edited Contributions, browse Contributions in Progress, view the list of Contributors, and also learn How to Become a Contributor. If you would simply like to comment on a contribution, please also read How to Become a Contributor as some of it applies to you.
There is no overarching narrative: The collection is intended simply to contain multiple and varied perspectives on what it is that contributors to the project feel programmers should know. This can be anything from code-focused advice to culture, from algorithm usage to agile thinking, from implementation know-how to professionalism, from style to substance, etc.
The deadline for having something considered for inclusion in the the book form of the project has passed, but the site is still open for contributions. 97 contributions have been selected and the book has now been published in O'Reilly's 97 Things series. The series already includes 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know and 97 Things Every Project Manager Should Know. You can find out more about the series and the 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know project in this InfoQ article.

On Unix-like operating systems (including BSD, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X), tilde often indicates the current user's home directory: for example, if the current user's home directory is /home/bloggsj, then cd, cd ~, cd /home/bloggsj or cd $HOME are equivalent. This practice derives from the Lear-Siegler ADM-3A terminal in common use during the 1970s, which happened to have the tilde symbol and the word "Home" (for moving the cursor to the upper left) on the same key.

There’s a problem in the style.css file of theme Twenty Eleven 1.3 at the following level:

/* =Header
----------------------------------------------- */

#branding {
border-top: 2px solid #bbb;
padding-bottom: 10px;
position: relative;
z-index: 2;

z-index must be 2 and not 9999 as it is in the original version

By Paul Graham.
May 2003

When I finished grad school in computer science I went to art school to study painting. A lot of people seemed surprised that someone interested in computers would also be interested in painting. They seemed to think that hacking and painting were very different kinds of work-- that hacking was cold, precise, and methodical, and that painting was the frenzied expression of some primal urge.

Both of these images are wrong. Hacking and painting have a lot in common. In fact, of all the different types of people I've known, hackers and painters are among the most alike.

What hackers and painters have in common is that they're both makers. Along with composers, architects, and writers, what hackers and painters are trying to do is make good things. They're not doing research per se, though if in the course of trying to make good things they discover some new technique, so much the better.

Please note: Some of the screenshots above show map themes from the marble-maps package. This package is still in extras-testing, waiting for at least three more testers before it can be promoted to extras. The same holds for monav-routing-daemon, the offline routing backend. If you can spare some time, please become a tester and vote for marble-maps 1.0.0 and monav-routing-daemon.

KAddressbook entries not usable from Kmail.

hat was the problem. I used an akonadi address book in KAddressBook,
but in systemsettings' Resources page, it still pointed to a file
resource. I deleted that and added the akonadi resource created in
KAddressBook, and now it works.

In system settings->Personal Information->KDE resources : use akonadi resource.

If you've been pointed at this page, then the chances are you're a relatively new Linux user who's having some problems making the switch from Windows to Linux. This causes many problems for many people, hence this article was written. Many individual issues arise from this single problem, so the page is broken down into multiple problem areas.
