re: What are your must-read tech books for 2018? VIEW POST


For the coming year, here's what I have so far:

  • The Pragmatic Programmer, by Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas. I've heard so many good things about this book, and it seems like it's a must-read for programmers the world over. Can't wait to get started on this.
  • Code Complete 2 by Steve McConnell. A book on clean coding practices, highly endorsed by Jeff Atwood (of StackOverflow fame). Sometime last year I actually got through about 25% of this book, and reading just that much opened my eyes enough to give me the realization of "man, my code looks like crap." Looking forward to finishing it as soon as I can.
  • Effective Java by Joshua Bloch. A friend recommended this to me as a step to taking my Java to the next level.
  • The Mythical Man-Month by Fred Brooks. Again, a must-read, from what I hear.

Apart from these, I have plans to learn more on design patterns, and probably a couple more languages, so I'll keep having more books to read :)


I've heart a lot about these books as well! So yeah, we should probably read aaall of them. 😊
A friend of mine got 'The Pragmatic Programmer' as a christmas present, I already asked him if I could borrow it for my upcoming 2018-book-project. YAY! 😊
