My favorite programming books
March 6th, 2007 · 4 Comments
Here’s a list of my favorite programming books.
I’m always been an avid reader of books about programming. The Computer Science curriculum I followed in engineering school gave me some good bases, but I’ve really learnt my craft in books. In the past 14 years I must have read more than one programming book per month in average.
Since many years I recommend books to fellow programmers and bring a growing library with me from company to company, where my colleagues are free to borrow anything. I finally took some time to gather these recommendations in an organized way in a single document, in order to share them more easily. I also registered in the Amazon Associates program, so if you follow these links to buy the books I’ll be able to buy and read more:-)
I tried to list only the most important books here, the ones that taught me something deep and durable. A few of them I haven’t read: I keep Knuth for a time when I have more free time. Each of these books if you haven’t read them already, has the potential of making you a better programmer. Thanks to all these authors who stimulated my intellect, taught me my craft, and made my job as a professional programmer so much more enjoyable.
Enjoy the reading. If you have good books to recommend me, send me email at firstname at lastname dot com.
