What books are in your library?
Do you have a favorite next to your monitor while you program?
Every developer has at least one reference book handy standing up next to their monitor or within hands reach.
As you can see, the books above I have are as follows:
- C# Pocket Reference - Those darn Regular Expressions keep me on my toes and this pocket reference definitely comes in handy at times.
- Design Patterns in C# - One of the best books that follows suit to the wildly famous Design Patterns book. This hardback has 23 design patterns for C# and is used on occasion.
- Joel On Software(and that long title name) - Joel Spolsky is a famous Micro-ISV and has learned many lessons from being at Microsoft and programming on his own for so many years. This book (and others) are made as a tome for programmers. Great reading! Thank you, Joel.
- The Daily Drucker
