I really enjoyed "The Passionate Programmer" and I don't think it gets mentioned enough. A few interesting takeaways:

  • know 3 types of languages: mature, experimental, and half-way
  • specializing in a business domain > specializing in a tech stack
  • you only improve by surrounding yourself with better engineers so embrace feeling lost and confused
