About Books on Code

Learning to code is fun.

That is the inspiration behind Books on Code — a programming learning platform for self-taught programmers and life-long learners to get the job, get the promotion, or simply push the limits of the programming career path.

What makes Books on Code unique? We focus on sharing technical programming books that are brain-friendly and fun so that we can learn technical skills faster, better, and with more excitement.

At Books on Code, we encourage multiple forms of learning to keep engaged throughout the process of leveling up our careers. That’s why we also often recommend highly-vetted, inexpensive-or-free digital courses from Udemy, Coursera, or Codecademy.
