A few days back, I was looking for good videos/links to interview questions on technical topics specifically for .NET. Unfortunately Google didn’t help me much to search for the required content. In the end I bought the book of questions and answers and found it useful to go through it, rather than spending time in searching for the content on net.
I was an avid reader during school and college days.I would spend the days and nights reading a novel-be it historical or a classic. However the reading habit slowly died out as i started working for the employer. Lately I have been trying to read Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, but I am stuck in the first chapter itself:(
Jeff Atwood (he is my favorite blogger) points out that programmers don’t read books, largely due to
- Programmers are addicted to computing devices, be it PC, laptop, tablet or a smart phone, and with the inefficient but relatively available internet connection, they prefer to find things online.
- The whole bunch of technical aspects are packed in the book, whereas the programmer would be interested to find out about the problem at hand.
- it does take a fair amount of time to read the whole book- and people don’t have time in this digital era.
I found stack overflow the right Q&A site for technical questions. Quora is a great Q&A site if you want to look for some specific content or if you are looking for an answer to a specific question.
