The Imposter’s Handbook is a fun to read book. It starts from the idea that anyone without a Computer Science degree can get quickly into the most common concepts, slang and buzzwords used in the IT industry.
We all know that we use CS jargon (may-be BS jargon) to make things look more complex and to make us look smart.
The book claims to cover all the concepts of a CS degree which is a bit exaggerated but still a lot is covered. Topics are:
- Lambda calculus
- Bog O
- Data structures
- Design patterns
- Functional programming
