A glimpse of my life through the lens of books

The book experiment of 2022

I’ve re-read the Pragmatic Programmer recently and something that I was reminded of was investing in skills and continuous learning. They said that as a programmer, you should be reading one technical book a month amongst other readings. I do read quite a bit of books per year but technical books? Not really. Definitely not one book a month. Maybe 3-4 technical books a year.

So for 2022, I plan on making at least 12 technical books a goal of mine among other books I read. I did a Google search (not a thorough one) on highly recommended technical books. I ended up with 31 technical books that are either highly recommended or seemed very interesting to me. I have the list on Goodreads.

I want to say that I’ll review all the books and compile lessons I’ve learned here… but we will see where this goes.
