Add To The Reading Queue
I should take a week off of work so I can sit around and read (like that could ever happen).
So many books, so little time
- Hibernate in Action
- If the slashdot review glowed any brighter, it'd spontaneously combust.
- Agile Database Techniques : Effective Strategies for the Agile Software Developer
- Weighing YAGNI against the PITA'ness of data model changes has bit me before. Data modeling and iterating over model revisions are often the hard part in agile development cycles. I'd expect Scott Ambler to offer useful insights into lightening what is often the heaviest part of a projects development.
- The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth
- As one who actively looks for opportunities in subverting the dominant paradigm, I'm interested in Clayton Christensen's follow-up to The Innovator's Dilemma.
Someday real soon, I'll build a little app with Amazon's ListLookupOperation to integrate wishlist items with my blog and perhaps fold it into an Attention.XML data source.
