Inspired by this post by Gregory Brown, I'd like to share the books I'm planning to read in the cold Chicago winter. By diving into these resources, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of my work.
1) Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software Paperback – Charles Petzold
Why? I want to understand programming and computer science on a more fundamental level; to understand today's practices as part of a larger tradition.
2) Programming Elixir 1.3: Functional |> Concurrent |> Pragmatic |> Fun - Dave Thomas
Why? I've been learning Elixir for a while now, and love it. I aim to get a deeper perspective on the language and familiarize myself with the canonical books currently available.
3) Code Complete: A Practical Handbook of Software Construction - Steve McConnell
