In the above tweet, I reached out to the Twitter DEV community in search of an alternative way to learn Web Development.. Resource books! I really didn't want to spend 100% of my time glued to the computer; Straining my eyes or damaging my back, but nor did I want to sacrifice any signicant learning & progress (especially as a newbie!) by taking that extended break.
I dont know about you, but I find myself at a loss when I'm not at my computer, I feel like I should be working on a project, or watching a tutorial, this feeling occurs more when I know I need to take a break from the screen and recharge. I enjoy reading as a whole, So when I reached out to the #DEVcommunity.
They did not disappoint.
These are just some of the best web development books highly recommended by Twitter users:
Thinking In Java - Bruce Eckel
CSS in depth - Manning.com
Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS - Ben Frain
My fellow Dev Jack Domleo wrote a fantastic review, find it here: (https://jackdomleo.dev/blog/book-review-responsive-web-design-with-html5-and-css-by-ben-frain)
HTML & CSS
(my current read!)
You don't know JS - Kyle Simpson
The clean coder - Robert C.Martin
The list is endless!
It is important to take a break away from the screen, but if you find yourself wanting to continue learning, resource books are a great way to do so!
Do we always have to rely on our computers to learn the fundamentals of Web Development? Absolutely not!
