re: Learning to love software development books 💙 VIEW POST


I think the biggest problem with language books is that they written by software engineers with 30+ years of experience. Their perspective is totally different from a beginner. So the pace is usually not the best.

I've read a few books where the first chapter is about OOP, objects and classes, before getting into the basics like variables, conditions, etc.

I don't read much books now other than reference a thing here and there.

For me the biggest takeaway in books was that they had a nice progressive learning, good examples, and structured mini projects. Those books are counted with one hand.
