The NFJS 2006 Anthology is available for pre-order. The book is an excellent collection of articles by NFJS speakers, based in most cases on talks we’re giving during this year’s symposiums. Neal Ford did a great job as editor, and it’s being published (of course!) by the Pragmatic Bookshelf, which means you can get a paper copy, a PDF, or a combination.

My article is a bit unusual. Rather than expanding on one of my talks, I wrote instead about a common theme that characterizes many of my recent talks: old ideas or technologies that are showing their worth again in the modern software development climate, and the importance of knowing the history of our field. The article is called Buried Treasure, and I’m thrilled that it’s been selected as one of two articles that are available on the website as teasers for the book. I’ve love to hear your feedback!
