Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software, by Gamma, Helm, Johnson & Vissides
“A fundamental reading, the father & the main guide for established design patterns in Software Development, even as (relatively) old as it is. I’d recommend this as a requirement for any new developer, as well as a reference book to come back to for experienced ones”.
Everyday Scripting with Ruby, by Marick
“A nice read that simultaneously explains the basics of Ruby, the features of the language, and how to implement simple scripts to easy up everyday work for Developers and Testers (branch tests, file change checks, etc.).
It not only helped me early on while learning Ruby, it helped me to look into how to make our work easier with some code and ingenuity”.
You don’t know JS, by Simpson
“A book that started as a big compilation of good practices and down-to-earth examples of coding with JS, available via Github as it was developed, it finally reached the shelves not too long ago.
A great reference while working on JS, whichever framework it might be, I’d recommend any JS developer to at least take a look”.
Personal Finance for Dummies by Eric Tyson
“The title looks lame, but it’s a great intro to handling your personal finances and understanding how money is handled in a higher level”.
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
“Snow Crash is a futuristic cyberpunk Sci-fi novel. By far my favorite book!”
Erlang programming by Francesco Cesarini & Simon Thompson.
“Erlang programming is about coding with Erlang language. Beyond Erlang language and a great introduction to FP(functional programming), this book talks about some programming techniques used in concurrent and parallel programming. IMHO, great resource for any software developer”.
The Historian, by Elizabeths Kostovo.
“Great book that awoke in me the traveler that we should all have. It really drives to discover new places and cultures. It has great descriptions from multiple places in Europe tie to an thrilling story where every clue is obtained through research”.
Real-Time Rendering by Eric Haines, Naty Hoffman and Tomas Moller
“This book has very useful references and every year’s newest rendering graphic techniques”.
Start With Why by Simon Sinek
"When an organization can explain WHY they do what they do, it inspires it's employees, its customers and those around. Start With Why helped me put into perspective my job and it also gave me a sense of guidance of what I really want and why I want to accomplish it".
Origins of Adamic Civilization by Sisedon de Trohad
“I learned a lot about ancient and human history and about the great brotherhood that existed. For me, this is a great example to follow”.
