My ‘must-read book’ for this month

OpenSource For You - - CODE SPORT -

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!
