Titus Winters, Tom Manshreck, Hyrum Wright: Software Engineering at Google

book cover white Not so long ago I stumbled upon Software Engineering at Google by Titus Winters, Tom Manshreck, Hyrum Wright, and decided to read it. Most parts of the book are nice, especially the parts about engineering management, about the deprecation processes, and about their build systems and infrastructure. Some parts are too basic and a bit obvious, e.g. almost every chapter about testing. The culture part of the book even sounds like some sort of a company handbook, which is kind of ok for the book with a company name in the title.

In general, the book is nice and mostly interesting to read. It gives a sneaky peek in the company work environment, culture, and processes with good and bad parts. The book also has some corporate vibes, that some people might even start missing because of the lockdown.
