15 recommended books on programming
We asked our programmers: What are the books you recommend? What helped you the most, where did you learn a lot? Below you will find a list with the answers!
1. Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture by Martin Fowler.
No longer the most recent of all works (2002), but covers most of the basic patterns including alternatives and problems used in our stack (Unit-of-Work, Repositories, Entities, DTOs, Value Objects, Identiy Maps …) Highly recommended!
2. Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software by Eric J. Evans.
The "bible" of Domain-Driven Design. The book conveys very well why the focus of software development should be on the domain model. The focus is less technical and more on communication.
3. Implementing Domain-Driven Design by Vaughn Vernon
A longer and more detailed version of Evans' book. It also covers newer patterns such as CQRS, grid computing and events. There are many references to Evans in the book, so it is helpful to read Evans first.
4 Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship by Robert C. Martin.
Virtually a must-read for developers. Less about concrete architectures, but more about the code itself and its creation. On the whole, absolutely worth reading!
5. Effective Java by Joshua Bloch
Very good book with many Java-specific solution patterns for recurring problems, written by one of the absolute Java gurus. Recommended after about 6-12 months of Java experience.
6. Head First Design Patterns (A Brain Friendly Guide) by Eric Freeman, Elisabeth Robson
This book is a bit unusual, but describes the most important GoF design patterns very clearly.
