I love books

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

I have a pretty extensive library of paper books.

Many of them are about programming. 30%, I’d say.

I used to buy a lot of books about software development. I’d take the train to the big city, go to the big library where I knew I could find the good books (when Linux was still sold in 4 CD sets). Books were basically the only way to learn programming on your own on a budget.

A good portion of my books are about self improvement, personal growth. I’m very passionate about the subject.

Some books about business. Small business, and books about solo operations, mostly. But I also have a fair share of the common startup-oriented books.

Some books are biographies or collections of stories about interesting people or companies.

Some books are about how to write.

Some are about marketing. I run a solo business and It’s essential for its existence to think a lot about marketing.

Near-zero fiction.

Most of my books are written in English. That’s how I learned English (I only started learning English at 14).

Some are books everyone talks about. Some others are obscure books I only got second-hand because they were out of print.

Some books live on my iPad or on my Kindle, but I really, really like to have a book in printed format.

I like to keep my books around. I want to look at them. I want them to look at me. I want to stay surrounded by them, to remind me I have a lot of things to learn and to explore, and there’s no time to fool around.

I haven’t read all my books. Yet today I ordered a bunch of books.

7 new books. Solo business, personal finance freedom, mental models, branding.

Not programming related this time, although I’m preparing a batch of programming books soon. Programming books expire so fast, and I think I already got the ones I’d consider pillars. But there’s always something I am missing.

One day I’ll start a “books” section here, perhaps, posting my notes on the books I like the most.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
