I feel incredibly well, reading books about “old times” in the programming world. It’s so refreshing to have a chance to take a look behind the scenes of such legendary creations as UNIX, Doom, Quake or Prince of Persia.
Here are the books I’m talking about:
- “UNIX: A History and a Memoir” by Brian W. Kernighan
- “The Making of Prince of Persia: Journals 1985-1993” by Jordan Mechner
- “Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture” by David Kushner
