5 Must Read Books - My Dev/Tech/Presenter Recommendations

5 Must Read Books - My Dev/Tech/Presenter Recommendations

In this video I want to show you my 5 top most useful books! These books that I cover (timestamps and links below) have been absolutely crucial in my developer career and have helped me understand both topics that I work on, on a daily basis and also helped me become a better all-round technologists and, even, presenter.

The 5 books I recommend to you here are mixed in topic and although some a quite specific to me and what I do, most of them are books I think that many devs could benefit from. I even categorise each book as either a book for “specific” devs, “every” dev and “everyONE”. To help you actually use this video to your full advantage.

The books in question cover these topics:
* The Linux Terminal (Command Line) – How to use it
* Android App Development
* Using a command line text editor – Vim
* Useful SysAdmin knowledge
* Becoming a better presenter

This video is just to give you an idea of some of the books that I read and enjoy in order to help me learn the skills that I use regularly. I want to just pass on the information about where I got that knowledge from and give props to the writers! FYI I am not sponsored at all by any writer or book or publisher or anything.

Books and their timestamps ======================

02:14 – The Linux Command Line (William Shotts)

04:10 – Android Studio 3.5 Development Essentials (Neil Symth)

05:57 – Mastering Vim Quickly (Jovica Ilic)

Question: How Many Tech Books Should You Read Per Week to be Successful?

Question: How Many Tech Books Should You Read Per Week to be Successful?

I understand everyone’s brain is different, but what would you find to be the minimum number of books or IT related works one should read a week to be a successful and multi-faceted IT professional? During the years of your learning, what is the most you found you could cram into the brain each week without losing retention? Do you think people who aren’t successful in IT simply haven’t studied up and read enough books, and thus don’t have the right tools to tackle problems?
