Useful free online books for ACM members

Are you an ACM member? If so, did you know about their online book program? They’ve got a whole bunch of books with the full content online, decent indexing and all. There are gaps (no O’Reilly books), but in my bookshelf right now I have the following just from a half-hour rummaging:

  • About Face 2.0: The Essentials of Interaction Design, Alan Cooper and Robert Reimann
  • Agile Modeling: Effective Practices for eXtreme Programming and the Unified Process, Scott Ambler
  • Managing Software Deliverables: A Software Development Management Methodology, John W. Rittinghouse
  • Professional J2EE EAI, Matjaz Juric, et al.
  • Professional PERL Programming, Simon Cozens, Arthur Corliss, et al. (why PERL instead of Perl?)
  • and a few others

Next: Out for a week
