One of my non official resolutions this year was to read more, actually I have a ridiculous long Amazon Wishlist with all the books I want to read this year.
From that list, I’ve read:
- An Introduction to Programming in Go
- Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual See my previous blog post.
- Scalability Rules: 50 Principles for Scaling Web Sites
- Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3
- Unraveling Bootstrap 3.3
- Knockout.js: Building Dynamic Client-Side Web Applications
- Growing Rails Applications in Practice
- Service-Oriented Design with Ruby and Rails
And I already own from that list the following books (and actually this is my official backlog):
- 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know: Collective Wisdom from the Experts
- Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby
- Real Time Analytics
- Big Data
- Go Programing Blueprints
- Go in Practice
- Go in Action
- Go Web Programming
I like reading a lot and I like learning new stuff; and although I’ve been working professionally for too long, I still like reading books about the topics I’m familiar with, there’s always something cool to learn.
I would probably revisit NodeJS next year, I still think is good a framework to learn, but until then I’m a Golang guy!!
