2017 Books of the Year

These are the books that were indispensable this year as I continued learning and developing the apps that constitute my portfolio.

  • CentOS 7 Linux Server Cookbook by Oliver Pelz and Jonathan Hobson
  • Mastering CentOS 7 Linux Server by Mohamed Alibi
  • Building Android Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript by Jonathan Stark
  • Learn HTML5 and JavaScript for iOS: Web Standards-based Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch by Scott Preston
  • Learning PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, CSS & HTML5 by Robin Nixon
  • Plug-In PHP: 100 Power Solutions by Robin Nixon

Honorable Mention (awesome books I used a lot but weren’t as indispensable)

  • The Linux Command Line by William E. Shotts, Jr. from the ever-awesome No Starch Press

Were Briefly Under Consideration (Great books but not used a lot)

  • Eloquent JavaScript by Marijn Haverbeke
  • In the Eye of the SCORM by Claude Ostyn
  • Data Driven Documents: D3.js Tips and Tricks by Malcolm Maclean

Sprint at the End Reappearance from Last Year

  • Interactive Data Visualization for the Web by Scott Murray

Once again, I checked out this book and renewed it as many times as I could. My boss gave me a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas and I just used it to order my very own copy of the 2nd edition which is twice as thick!

Not books, but dang they helped me a TON
