Is it worth studying old books on programming?
There are many new books on programming, but they are not always of high quality. Moreover, the training goes on-line very quickly. Is it worth spending time studying old books on programming (for instance, those published before 2010)? If so, what books should we pay attention to? Tproger journalists decided to find out the opinions of experts, one of them was Danil Yusupov, ICL Services Software Engineer.
"I believe that it is not necessary to renounce all the books that are outdated. I think it all depends on what exactly we want to study.
If this is something fundamental, such as «Algorithms and data structures», then why not. The first thing that appears when requested by Google is a book written by Niklaus Wirth in 1976. Yes, it is still popular!
Also, books written on design patterns and some common areas of programming do not become outdated. Of course, I do not argue that the more recent books may cover a specific area more extensively, taking into account current trends, problems and experiences.
