[Book Titles]For those that wanna go to the extreme in programming.


Recommended Posts

The following books asume that you already know programming and you wanna sharpen your skills to seek greater heights.


1)Clean Code: A handbook of agile software craftsmanship




This book is written in java but can be applied in other languages aswell since it focuses on how to write clean, agile, robust and easily testable code. It starts from basic naming principles and goes all the way up to Unit Testing and Multithreading in java. Easy to read if you are familiar with java and quite enjoyable.


2)Designing with Progressive Enhancement: Building the Web that Works for Everyone




This book talks about how to build web sites and generally web applications that both look good and work on as many as possible browsers. Progresive enhancement is all about building simple things that are guaranteed to work everywhere and then progressivelly making them more complex adding cutting edge features ( CSS3 , HTML5 ) that will enhance their appearance to the most modern browsers.


3)Modern C++ Design: Generic Programming and Design Patterns Applied




This book assumes you are something more than familiar with C++. I randomly found it in my ipad's collection a year ago when riding the bus home. By using templates it specializes on building software structures that run at compile time instead of run time translating into very fast applications. The book has some math in it too and assumes knowledge of data structures. This is the type of book that will need to to spend couple of minutes per page to fully understand the magic behind the witchcraft Andrei Alexandrescu performs.


I will assume that you know how to search for pdf's at google. Posting direct links would be of no worth since they die pretty fast.
