Reading: It's a huge topic for me. I think everyone should take time to read a bit. Obviously, developers aren't an exception.
Reading already demonstrated its capability to stimulate our brain and our imagination. So, it increases de facto our ability to learn and to create thing. This can be even better if the author has a real talent to tell stories or to teach his passion.
The curated bullet list bellow aggregates the books I believe have made me grow as a developer or as a technical expert. I have read them, or at least started to read them.
Of course, this is my own opinion, and you are free to build your own list.
I'm constantly trying to find a new book to read. If you have some good one to share, please share them on our Discord server. I'll surely read them, and maybe some will be listed here.
