March’s book selection will be a practical/technical title: The Best Software Writing I, edited by Joel Spolsky.
“With a nod to both the serious and funny sides of technical writing, The Best Software Writing I: Selected and Introduced by Joel Spolsky is an entertaining read and a guide to the technical writing literati. Contains writings from many authors, such as: Ken Arnold, Raymond Chen, Cory Doctorow, Bruce Eckel, Paul Graham, John Gruber, Mary Poppendieck, Clay Shirky, and why the lucky stiff.”
Some places you can find this title:

The meetup will be on Tuesday, March 21 at 6:30PM at our usual location: the ActiveProspect office, 4203 Guadalupe in Hyde Park.
