I'll structure this in "current/future/recent_past" format if I may.

Currently:

* The Go Programming Language

https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Language-Addison-Wesley-P...

* Building Microservices

https://www.amazon.com/Building-Microservices-Designing-Fine...

Plan to do next:

* Designing Data-Intensive Applications

https://www.amazon.com/Designing-Data-Intensive-Applications...

* Designing Distributed Systems

https://www.amazon.com/Designing-Distributed-Systems-Pattern...

* Unix and Linux System Administration 5th ed, but probably just gonna skip/read chapters of interest, i.e. I wanna get a better understanding of SystemD.

Read last month:

* Learning React

Good for a quick intro but I probably wouldn't read cover-to-cover again, some sections are old, but overall an OK book.

* React Design Patterns and Best Practices

Really liked this one, picked a tonne of new ideas and approaches that are hard to find otherwise for a newbie in JS scene. These two books, some time spent reading up on webpack and lots of github/practice code made me not scared of JS anymore and not feeling the fatigue. I mean, I was one of the people who dismissed everything frontend related, big node_modules, electron, complicated build systems etc. But now I sort of understand why and am on the different side of the fence.

* Flexbox in CSS

Wanted to understand what's the new flexbox layout is about since it's been a while when I've done some serious CSS work. Long story short I made it about half of this and dropped it - not any more useful than MDN docs and actually playing with someone's codepen gave me better understanding in 5 minutes than 3 hours spent with this book.
