Books for geeks

Posted July 11, 2016 | View revision history

One of my favorite perks of working at GitHub is the fact that the company covers all your work-related reading. That (plus a good deal of travel over the years) means that I’ve read quite a few books about technology, about open source, and about business.

If those topics sound interesting, here are some of my favorite books for hackers, for geeks, and for open source developers.

Of course, if you have a recommendation, I’m always looking for new books to read. Let me know in the comments below.
