Some book recommendations for the rainy weekend

(Last Updated On: 24. August 2018)

Recently I’ve found the time to read some very interesting books that I can really recommend – both from an entertaining as well as from a knowledge perspective:

The Lean Startup

I think I don’t have to write much about this book. Everybody interested in getting to know the lean principle should definitely read this.

Building Microservices

As microservices seems to be a trending topic these days understanding the idea and concept behind them was very interesting (though I do not think they are suitable for every case).

Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship

Also a classic which I did not have the chance to read until now. Although with lots of Java sample code the book presents the concepts and patterns very hands-on and can easily be comprehended.

Remote: Office Not Required

Watching a TED talk of “Why work doesn’t happen at work by Jason Fried lately I knew I had to read his book. Very recommendable and hopefully all the old-school enterprises will read it too 😉

Softwarequalität in PHP-Projekten

Very interesting German book with lots of useful case studies about ensuring quality in real-life projects from the creator of PHPUnit.
