Books That Every Programmer Should Read
Via digg, I came across „The 5 Books that Every Programmer Should Read” by Shane Sherman. I don’t agree with his selection on all points. IMHO, Joel Spolsky’s list would fit my preferences better. I especially like this comment:
I think that this book, universally known as K&R, is THE book anyone who wants to be a programmer must learn first. Pick it up and work through it in detail. If you love every minute of it, you can be a programmer. If you find this old-school text programming stuff boring, or the pointer stuff drives you crazy, trust me, you’re not going to like programming very much.
