One of the things that I see repeated over and over again is the simple question “What books should I read to become a better developer?“. Or “How did you learn about that?“. Or even “What does a coding standard matter?”… OK, so that last one was a bit of a sentinel question, but the point is clear. Where should you look if you want to read to improve your development abilities? Well, I figured I’d take a few pages out of my library and share which books worked for me, in order of significance. If you remember from a prior post, I indicated that you should choose concepts over implementations. This list should illustrate that.
