Any software developer worth their salt will tell you that one of the most important things you can do to improve your skills is to read.
But with the vast number of books available on the subject, it can be hard to know where to start.
To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of essential reads for any software developer.
Note: The list contains only books not related to any particular programming language.
- Test Driven Development: By Example ( Kent Back ) Another classic one.
I didn’t know a lot about TDD since I discovered it at a Codemotion event.
I’ve read this book multiple times, and since then, my code quality increased a lot.
Quite simply, test-driven development eliminates fear in application development.
In my opinion, this book should be a required read for anyone of any level and position in the software development field.
This book teaches so many timeless and solid principles that could take years for the average developer to learn, if ever, especially if you are a self-taught developer.
- Cracking the Coding Interview, 6th Edition: 189 Programming Questions and Solutions
Do- Want to crack all the codes thrown at you?
You are not good at advanced techniques of coding?
This book is an excellent in-deep source for everybody who is preparing for an interview.
You can’t just read it: you have to study and practice a lot.
This book is not only useful for preparing for an interview but also for sharpening your coding skills!
There are many ways to improve your development skills, and reading books is one of my favorites.
Pickup up a few of these titles and start reading. 📚
You won’t regret it!! 😃
