As mentioned in my editorial, I plan on working through books this year for some extra learning. Certainly I’ll still use Pluralsight, websites, and more learn some things, but I want to get through at least 6 books this year and practice those skills. Six seems doable. Eight would be great. Twelve is unlikely and four is a failure. You can see this in my amazing, homegrown career skill thermometer.
In any case, my goal tracking will be looking at how I get through books. Here are the ones on my list for now, in no particular order. They’re just listed in the order I bought them during the CyberWeek sale.
- Pro SQL Server on Linux
- Advanced Data Analytics Using Python
- XML and JSON Recipes for SQL Server
- Learn Data Analysis with Python
- Beginning DAX with Power BI
- Azure and Xamarin Forms
- Practical Web Scraping for Data Science
- Pro Power BI Desktop
- Applied Natural Language Processing with Python
- Pro SQL Server 2012 Relational Database Design and Implementation
I’m going to start with Pro SQL Server on Linux and go from there. I may add other books, or change mid year, depending on what I find as I go through these books.
