What are best resources for a front end developer to learn enough about UX and UI design principles to be more productive?

Is there a book? or ebook? or a structured list of tutorials/examples?

For the UI-part

If you don't have any design-experience, Typography and Layout are the most important basics. Any decently rated book an Amazon should teach them. I heard good things about this one

For the UX-part

Web/UX/App-design is product-design. A classic in this area is "The Design of Everyday Things".
