Default Code Complete

I am just finishing Code Complete 2nd edition by Steve McConnell. This book should be a must read for any developer looking to improve the quality of thier code. Code Complete focuses on all aspects of software development from variable naming to integration testing.

From Wikipedia:
Code Complete is a software development book, written by Steve McConnell and published by Microsoft Press, urging developers to get past code and fix programming and the "big design up front" waterfall model. It is also a compendium of useful software construction techniques, from naming variables to deciding when to write a subroutine.

McConnell defines the main activities in construction as:

detailed design
construction planning
unit testing
integration, and
integration testing
Code Complete, Second Edition
