Hello from the first post of the year.
The topic is not a new one actually, I’m continuing to say little notes about my read list. All these are not read in 2020, I read some of them in 2019. Let’s start!
- Effective Java
Author: Joshua Bloch
It contains several points that how effectively to use Java. Actually, the book provides Java examples, but I think you can convert and apply these significant suggestions to any programming language.
Author: Tom DeMarco, Timothy Lister
Actually, I felt something undefined things when I am reading this book. Because I read several start-up or software culture books before it. I was late to read Peopleware, but I can say mind at peace that if this book never exists, start-up and software culture do not reach today’s conditions. In the ’80s, the authors indicate many important and fundamental situations such as developers are human beings, they deserve human interaction and comfortable chairs 🤓

- Predictable Revenue
Author: Aaron Ross, Marylou Tyler
This is not directly related software, but I am also a co-founder of a start-up, thus I should get a minimum level of what is the element of business sides such as sales or marketing. Predictable Revenue is a kind of “the book” of the business.
My to-read list is already prepared and it starts with RFC 2616 HTTP/1.1 🧐 📖
