Books I’ve Read (2019)

Similar to the personal page, this page helps me keep track of what I read. This is just for the tech books though.

October

  • Absolute FreeBSD, 3rd Edition, Michael W. Lucas
    (if you’ve read a Lucas book, you know you’re in for a funny, yet no nonsense ride.
    This gets you up to speed, with FreeBSD basics in short order.
    Once you’re done with this, learning the more advanced stuff gets much easier.)

August

May

  • Mastering Emacs, Mickey Petersen
    (this book helped me learn emacs. very helpful. good reference)

  • Extreme Programming Pocket Guide, Shane Warden
    (short, succinct, sweet. jargon free. practical. a practitioner’s manual)

  • Python for You and Me, Kushal Das
    (serves as an excellent introduction to someone who wants to learn Python quickly, so that you can get on with doing projects)

Older

  • i want 2 do project. tell me wat 2 do, Shakthi Kannan
    (if you are interested in the floss world, this book is an excellent howto)

  • Lauren Ipsum, Carlos Bueno
    (a really gentle introduction to computer science. ostensibly for kids. even kids like me aged 40 :))
