What are your favourite technology books of all time?

What was the last technology book you read?

When I ask that question in job interviews, I usually get a politely embarrassed response mentioning blog posts, or Pluralsight or twitter. It seems that books have fallen out of favour with many of us - perhaps we feel that with all the pace of technology we just don't have the time?

In this talk I will:

  • Explain why books should be an essential part of your learning approach.
  • Share my "must reads" for .NET developers - and invite you share yours.
  • Break books down in the four essential categories I think you should explore.
  • Explain how to get the best from a technical book in the shortest possible time.

You will walk away inspired to read a great book - I promise you!
