Recession Proof Your Programming Skills (Listmania-ed)

Found this great new, well new to me, service on Amazon called Listmania. It allows you to bundle Amazon products in to a list for easy consumption. So the first list of Amazon items I thought of trying out as a Listmania list was a post a I did a while ago titled "Recession Proof Your Programming Skills"

In this economy you have to do everything to keep your skills fresh and current so that employers find you a desirable hire. I really though the tips provided in 8 Ways to Recession-Proof Your Programming Career where spot on when this article came out last year. And now that the TechRepublic has released 10 kills developers will need in the next 5 years. I have decided to give you some of my favorite Wrox books that align very well to this TechRepublic article.

The Economy may or may not seem so bleek anymore depending on who you talk to, but the message is still the same, keep your skills current and marketable. That is why I put together the list originally and it is still why I am porting it to Listmania.

Click here to check out my "Recession Proof Your programming Skills" Listmania list.

I will try to keep this up to date with new books I find useful and marketable in the way of programming skills, if you have any comments or suggestions for my list please feel free to leave them below.
