Reading List of 200 Software Developers

Have you ever wondered what books other developers read? I have, so for the past 12 months I’ve been noting down the purchases shared by work colleagues. This list has been a fantastic resource for choosing what to read next.

The list comprises of 29 books purchased by 200 developers, ordered by popularity. It starts with the Designing Data-Intensive Applications book, purchased by 51 developers, then finishes with the Designing Web APIs book, purchased by only 5. I’ve removed technology specific books (e.g. Kubernetes, Terraform etc) to make the list applicable to all developers.
