Laptop with books aside
Emile Perron

For this November 2020, we have covered you with some interesting titles for you to enjoy in this autumn month.

Thanks to our reader Sanjay who proposed a new fiction category which techies might enjoy, Sanjay also recommended this book “The Case of IBM 386 PC”, three fictional stories from the early days of IBM PC. You’ll also enjoy Sid Meier’s Memoir, the life, and career of the legendary developer and creator of the Civilization game.

We also added, as always, some of the technical genres, like one of the best-rated books by Daniel Knuth, The Art of Computer Programming: Fundamental Algorithms, which is a must-read for anyone involved in programming.

A good book for beginners in learning to program with AI, Big Data, and The Cloud by following the new approach proposed in this book: Intro to Python for Computer Science and Data Science by Paul Deitel and Harvey Deitel.

And last, level up your CSS skills with CSS Secrets by Lea Verou, an expert in this field who teaches some of the techniques for solving every-day problems.

Let us know in the comments what are your favorite books and we’ll share them with the community.
