What are your favorites books (preferably online and for free) from general programming concepts and paradigms to specific languages?

I'm pretty focused on the JS ecosystem and my favorites are Eloquent Javascript, You don't know JS, and All of them are free.

Node.js Design Patterns by Mario Casciaro and Luciano Mammino

I would say that this book is an excellent guide not only on the design patterns, or Node.js in particular, but also on JavaScript and web application architectures as a whole.

To be honest, one of the few more "practical" books on web development that hold really well and present actual value. I've studied the first and the excellent second edition (with a pretty in-depth introduction to React, sick!), and saw the source code for the 3d edition at one of the author's GitHub, which should be extremely valid, as well. Not an easy read, but totally worth the time and effort.
