Some tech books

Around the tail end of 2021 I started looking through used book sites for tech books because new ones are very expensive. I discovered a few things: old tech books are dirt cheap, a lot of the basics haven't changed all that much, and a lot of the old books had fantastic covers. I decided to buy a few, partially for decoration, partially because they're fun to look through, and partially because they're cheap. You can click on any image to get a bigger image if that's what you're into.

I started posting just the books with interesting covers and then I got carried away and did the rest of them, too. You might notice a lot of O'Reilly books. I went through a phase.

My definition of a 'tech book' is anything that has technical content or that tries to teach you something. That's why things like The Cathedral and the Bazaar aren't on this list. Also, The Cathedral and the Bazaar is a mess and I only managed to read about a third of it before giving up and going to read anything else.

Unless noted, if a book appears on this list, that shouldn't imply any endorsement or that I've gotten around to reading it.
