Ask HN: Books you should have read when you start a career in SE / CS?
yingw787: I read through Code Complete 2 cover to cover my first year and I agree with parent it's more useful early on than later. There's a lot of discussion around best practices; I think there's an entire chapter on strategic whitespace. All the stuff in there makes sense, but it cements why it's important.
enitihas: I found Code Complete to be as eye opening for day to day work as SICP is while learning in University.
