My ‘must-read book’ for this month
This month’s book suggestion comes from one of our readers— Shilpa, and her recommendation is very appropriate to this month’s column. She recommends an excellent article on information retrieval, titled, ‘Modern Information Retrieval: A Brief Overview’ by Amit Singhal, available at singhal.info/ ieee2001.pdf. Note that Amit Singhal is a pioneering researcher in information retrieval and heads the ‘search ranking’ team at Google. Thank you, Shilpa, for sharing this link.
If you have a favorite programming book/article that you think is a must-read for every programmer, please do send me a note with the book’s name, and a short write-up on why you think it is useful so I can mention it in this column. It would help many readers who want to improve their software skills.
If you have any favorite programming questions/software topics that you would like to discuss on this forum, please send them to me, along with your solutions and feedback, at sandyasm_AT_yahoo_DOT_com. Till we meet again next month, happy programming!
