Hello again, that was a very very long break. As all people know, we’re -almost- got over a pandemic. Luckily, I got over it by only changing some routines, not a person or job loss. I achieved some personal gains such as leading a remote team, working with multiple sub-teams, etc. On the contrary, my reading routine devastated me. I read too few for the last two years, but this year I bounce back!
Here are my shorties but goldies reading list for the last two years.
- Joel on Software
Author: Joel Spolsky
This book is highly poisonous but in a good way. I mean that is great content and expression, after reading this book the other books are not enough good for me for a while. I really like software people who have both advanced technical and human expression skills, I hope I’ll get to know much more this kind of people.
- The Pragmatic Programmer
Author: Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas
This is a quite famous book anyway. In my opinion, it deserves its fame by easy-reading content.
- Web Security for Developers: Real Threats, Practical Defense
Author: Malcolm McDonald
This book contains very long preliminary chapters about web programming. I strongly recommend that book for newbie web programmers, so they can have an aspect of security to web.
- Predictably Irrational
Author: Dan Ariely
I like this book! If you think that you’ll be interested in behavioral experiments, you should read 😉
- Also, I read some chapters from these two sibling books. Designing Data-Intensive Applications: The Big Ideas Behind Reliable, Scalable, and Maintainable Systems and Data Management at Scale. They have great content, but they gave me a textbook vibe 📖👩🎓
See you on other lists 👋
