“Reading the book Mazes for Programmers is like a fun journey through a maze. There’s a good mix of simple explanations and working code, combined with ideas at the end of each chapter to inspire one to expand upon what was presented.”
— Walter Pullen, Author, "Think Labyrinth!" website
“Mazes for Programmers is full of nerdy algorithmic delight and is a really fun read!”
— Bruce Williams, CTO, CargoSense, Inc.
“Jamis Buck’s inspired choice of mazes as a unifying theme allows him to take the reader on a deeply engaging tour of an impressive array of algorithms and programming techniques. Mazes for Programmersis an exemplary book of its kind, ideal for programmers looking to take a break from tuition in specific programming languages and learn something of general interest and applicability within their craft.”
— David A. Black, Author, “The Well-Grounded Rubyist”
“My past 20 years as a software developer have taught me two things. First, I will probably never need to generate a maze. Second, and more important, pushing myself in new and unfamiliar ways is the best way for me to level up as a programmer. Sure,Mazes for Programmers will teach you how to generate mazes, but it will also give you one of the clearest step-by-step tours through algorithmic thinking you can find.”
— Chad Fowler, CTO, Wunderlist
“This is a fun, playful tour of all the concepts and algorithms you’d want to know for generating and solving mazes. If only this book existed when I was writing Maze Crusade!”
— Amanda Wixted, Owner, Meteor Grove Software
“I started programming because of the fundamental joy of making cool things just for the sake of making cool things. Jamis’s Mazes for Programmers perfectly recaptures that feeling of pure, unadulterated awesomeness for awesomeness’s sake. This will be a book I come back to again and again.”
— Corey Haines, CTO, Curious Nation
