I think this has been an ongoing thing. You never really stop learning. There are various books/talks that influence you over time. Usually, I don't get swayed easily by them because I take the time to research things on my own and my knowledge applies collaborative filtering to grok things that I find useful.

One book that I loved about 15 years ago was Head First Design Patterns.

I used to love watching talks by Martin Fowler.

If you love gaming, I would highly recommend reading Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture!
