Hi everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the bootcamp as much as I am!
I’d like to delve deeper into some foundational concepts behind the frond end web development. It’s much more helpful for me to have my practice backed up by theory, so I was thinking about reading a book or two.
But there’s so many of them available! I want to be sure I use my time only for the best, and as a beginner, I have no skills to distiguish the bad or outdated advice from the good stuff.
So here are some questions for those of you with more experience:
Could you recommend a good book about the coding/programming mindset, pro-tips and best practices? Like not so much “use this or that class/property” but rather “here are the things you need to know to avoid the mistakes I’ve done” or “here are the habits of the best devs” kind of books?
I’ve read a lot of good opinions about the “Clean Code” book by Robert C. Martin. From what I can tell, the main concept is that code should be written from the start as readable to humans with minimal additional explanations. Would you recommend this book for a beginner? Is it still relevant, considering it’s been published in 2008? Or maybe it’s useful only for devs working in teams for big companies, since it mentions agile and collaborative processeses?
Thanks a lot for all the answers, have a great day!
