Multiple, Independent Sources Of Information On The Same Topic

July 3, 2014 1 comment

I can’t rave enough about how great a safaribooksonline.com subscription is for writing code. Take a look at this screenshot:

Five Books Open

As you can hopefully make out, I have five Firefox tabs open to the following C++11 programming books:

  1. The C++ Programming Language, 4th Edition – Bjarne Stroustrup
  2. The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference (2nd Edition) – Nicolai M. Josuttis
  3. C++ Primer Plus (6th Edition) – Stephen Prata
  4. C++ Primer (5th Edition) РStanley B. Lippman, Jos̩e Lajoie, Barbara E. Moo
  5. C++ Concurrency in Action: Practical Multithreading – Anthony Williams

A subscription is a bit pricey, but if you can afford it, I highly recommend buying one. You’ll not only write better code faster, you’ll amplify your learning experience by an order of magnitude from having the capability to effortlessly switch between multiple, independent sources of information on the same topic. W00t!
