My Wish List


I think one of the hardest parts of becoming a successful and educated programmer (besides just sitting down and coding) is finding good tools and resources to learn from and use. I put a lot of effort into finding these. In order to find these tools and recourses I look toward programmers I consider successful, most of which are listed under the Developer and Technologist Journals on my site. So far I have found frequent references to the following books and tools, these are on my to read/buy list.
