I’m fortunate that my company does a summer shutdown during the July 4th week. I plan on taking a day or so of that “free” time off to learn a new technology or go deeper in something that I’ve only touched at a cursory level.
I’ve recently read a few books (below) that were quite good and I’m on the lookout for others.
- Service-Oriented Architecture : A Field Guide to Integrating XML and Web Services
- CLR via C#
- SQL Server 2005 T-SQL Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach
- Pro SQL Server 2005 Database Design and Optimization
- Enterprise Architecture As Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution
All of those were great. I can’t recommend the CLR book enough. Great resource.
I’d love suggestions on books/topics that I should learn more about. I’ve been meaning to do serious WCF stuff for awhile. Maybe look at different angles on “security” or “collaboration”? Know of any fantastic “development project management” books?
