Reading List

This thread is an attempt to build a list of good technical articles that focus on general programming concepts(not necessarily Java) that are absolutely necessary for any developer: ones that any one can refer any time. Please contribute as and when you have something to share.

I know this is not a discussion; so if this is creating a clutter please delete it.

Reading lists are useful, so this isn't clutter. I am just not sure whether I ought to move it elsewhere. We have a lot of these quotes elsewhere; I can't remember whether we have them as an FAQ.

A couple of things I often refer to: about the equals() method: look at the chapter in Joshua Bloch's Effective Java (it used to be possible to find that section as a sample chapter on the net) and Angelika Langer's very useful website.

About Processes etc, I always quote the classic article by Michael Daconta.
