A nice article about how to be programmer it was written by Peter Norvig. I like to read books, see video courses, and I my preference are:

  • "Clean Code", by Robert C. Martin (have nice videos in the page cleancoders )
  • "Working Effectively With Legacy Code" by Michael Feathers
  • "Test Driven Development: By Example" by Kent Beck
  • "Refactoring : Improving the Design of Existing Code" by Martin Fowler
  • "JavaScript: The Good Parts" by Douglas Crockford
  • Online course: Coursera, Udacity, Udemy
  • HackerRank is a nice platform for practicing

In the future I plan to learn lisp and python. Lisp for think functionally and python for data analysis and machine learning (tensorflow).
