The Effective Engineer

Comments and mentions from HN threads:

Ask HN: What language-agnostic programming books should I read?

wenc: I really liked The Effective Engineer because it had more systems thinking behind rather just how to manage a code project. It covers some really foundational concepts like idempotency which programmers don't often think about when architecting systems.

Ask HN: Which non-programming books are a beneficial read for programmers?

comvidyarthi: I really liked "The Effective Engineer" by Edmond Lau. Its not intended for starting your own company. But it has some good insight for doing good in your job and how to grow as a software engineer.
