今天(噢,应该是昨天了)图灵在北京搞了一次Ajax群英会,盛况空前。(会议实况下周整理一下,贴过来吧。)其间《Erlang程序设计》赵东炜说到读论文的重要性。我还附和说,其实许多名家在讲治学的时候都会讲到,要读自己领域里最经典的和最重要的论文。

 

很巧,刚才从Reddit上看到了题为“10 Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) ”的文章,打开链接一看,是我们《修改代码的艺术》一书的作者Michael Feathers写的。他的那本书被称为“近十年来最有影响的计算机图书”之一,可是在国内的关注并不太够,这是为什么呢?

 

言归正传,看看是哪10篇论文入了Feathers大师的法眼吧:

  1. On the criteria to be used in decomposing systems into modules – David Parnas
  2. A Note On Distributed Computing – Jim Waldo, Geoff Wyant, Ann Wollrath, Sam Kendall
  3. The Next 700 Programming Languages – P. J. Landin
  4. Can Programming Be Liberated from the von Neumann Style? – John Backus
  5. Reflections on Trusting Trust – Ken Thompson
  6. Lisp: Good News, Bad News, How to Win Big – Richard Gabriel
  7. An experimental evaluation of the assumption of independence in multiversion programming – John Knight and Nancy Leveson
  8. Arguments and Results – James Noble
  9. A Laboratory For Teaching Object-Oriented Thinking – Kent Beck, Ward Cunningham
  10. Programming as an Experience: the inspiration for Self – David Ungar, Randall B. Smith

这里面文章的作者大牛如云啊,图灵奖得主、IEEE和ACM的Fellow。当然,还有Beck和Cunningham这样的实干家(没有听说过?面壁十天。XP、设计模式、重构、JUnit甚至Wiki都是他们搞出来的啊。)
