The list author says: "Those who are working in EQT front office IT, need some unique skills to be efficient and excel in their career, these are books I used and found helpful. If you are working in an IB, and responsible for development / design of real-time high throughput, low latency systems, this list will be useful for you...."
"Martin, Fowler / Kent, Beck - You can read anything they write, because they only write the good stuff. Very useful to learn refactoring techniques when you need to work on a large and old system to make it better, old is gold, but this teaches how to shine it."
"All in one about regular expression, python, perl, java and the author also is successful in selling his product ( I am naive, I bought it, it is useful though ). Is this a must to have? Questionable, if you have PERL cookbook, or internet ( just kidding ) you can live without it...but I like to have a book..."
"Eric, Evans - Read anything and everything. He knows what he is talking about. And this is a GREAT!! book. Must read for anybody who wants to build a system ( not for the book writers who use hello-world )"
"A must read, a large book, takes a lot of time, but worth investing in this. If you are an architect trying to build any statemanagement , database systems you need to know these principles. Great Book.!!"
"Lot of people do not understand what is GUI interface building and interaction building. This is written by not software professionals, but those who know how to design a system keepinig the user in mind."
"Old school, but still in use. This is a pre-cursor to going to domain driven design, how to perform a domain analysis, translating real world domain objeects in to business objects, how to represent the domain model in terms of entities, attributes, relationships, constraints, and logic... all encompaasing book for a technical analyst / architect."
"If you use STL then you must have this...OK I will not force you, you can find pretty much everything online, but reading this book as an exercise will help, and I use this as a cook book to go back often..."
"Boring Theory, but solid foundations if you are a book learner and keen to know the fundamentals, I would not buy in to whatever the book says, but it is a good book read...if you are a developer this is not much use for you.."
"Scala in my view has a strong potential to become the next JAVA, it is elegant, simple and frees up the developer from knowing complex concurrency by making specific language constructs...this is the best book in Scala"
"The 3rd Edition is a big upgrade from the second edition, you need to have some fundamental knowledge on IOC/DI/AOP.. great author, great book on Spring. I consider spring to become a defacto standard framework in JAVA development...."
