Kitap 7 bölümden oluşuyor ve bunların 3'ünün Türkçe çevirilerini belgeler.org'da okumak mümkün. Bu bölümler, kitaptaki sırası ile: Hacker'lığın Kısa Tarihçesi, Noosferi İskana Açmak ve Nasıl Hacker Olunur? İlk iki belgenin çevirmeni 2003 yılında En Başarılı Yerelleştirici ödülünü alan Deniz Akkuş. Son belgeyi ise Yaşar ŞENTÜRK çevirmiş ben de güncellemiştim. Hepsinin çevirileri çok güzel. Henüz okumamış olanlara tavsiye ediyorum.
Kitabı çabucak bitivermesin diye hızlıca okuyamıyorum ama ilk bölümler o kadar akıcı ki dün bir kaçını bitirdim. Eric S. Raymond ikinci bölümde fetchmail'in geliştirme sürecinin hikayesini anlatmış. Çıkardığı dersleri maddeler halinde şöyle sıralamış:
- Every good work of software starts by scratching a developer's personel itch.
- Good programmers know what to write. Great ones know what to rewrite (and reuse).
- "Plan to throw one away; you will, anyhow"
- If you have the right attitude, interesting problems will find you.
- When you lose interest in a program, your last duty to it is to hand it off to a competent successor.
- Treating your users as co-developers is your least-hassle route to rapid code improvement and effective debugging.
- Release early. Release often. And listen to your customers.
- Given a large enough beta-tester and co-developer base, almost every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix obvious to someone.
- Smart data structures and dumb code works a lot better than the other way around.
- If you treat your beta-testers as if they're your most valuable resource, they will respond by becoming your most valuable resource.
- The next best thing to having good ideas is recognizing goodideas from your users, sometimes the latter is better.
- Often, the most striking and innovative solutions come from realizing that your concept of the problem was wrong.
- "Perfection (in design) is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but rather when there is nothing more to take away."
- Any tool should bu useful in the expected way, but a truly great tool lends itself to uses you never expected.
- When writing gateway software of any kind, take pains to disturb the data stream as little as possible - and never throw away information unless the recipient forces you to!
- When your language is nowhere near turing-complete, syntactic sugar can be your friend.
- A security system is only as secure as it's secret. Beware of pseudo-secrets.
- To solve an interseting problem, start by finding a problem that is interesting to you.
- Provided the development coordinator has a communications medium at least as good as the Internet, and knows how to lead without coercion, many heads are inevitably better than one.
