Wouter Lagerweij's Blog: Reading Up: Books Every Programmer Should Read
Wouter Lagerweij has posted a list of books he thinks every programmer should read to help them get a better handle on their process overall (they apply to any language out there, really).
When discussing books on software engineering with colleagues, I got the idea of listing the best books I've read in the past 15 years. Because it seems useful, but also because that will allow others to tell me which ones I should have read.
He lists five books that cover some of the "meta" about programming:
- Applying UML patterns
- Design Patterns - GoF
- Refactoring (Martin Fowler)
- Test-Driven Development (Kent Beck)
- Clean Code (Robert Martin)
