Hi and welcome back to Weekly Dev Tips. I’m your host Steve Smith, aka Ardalis.
This is episode 42 - the answer to life, the universe, and everything - with some guest tips on learning TDD and Lisp.
Learning TDD and Lisp
This week we have a special guest. He is the author of the books Clean Code, The Clean Coder, and Clean Architecture, all of which I think should be required reading for professional software developers. Robert C. Martin, aka "Uncle Bob", is here to share a couple of tips for software developers. You'll find him online at @unclebobmartin on twitter and at cleancoder.com. We'll jump right into his tip after this quick word from this week's sponsor.

Ok, so without further ado, please welcome Uncle Bob to WeeklyDevTips!
Thanks so much, Bob! Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs was actually the first computer science text book I had in college, in a class that used another Lisp variant, Scheme. I've added links to the resources you mentioned to the show notes, which you'll find in your podcast client or at weeklydevtips.com/042.
