A few weeks ago I asked people a question on Twitter:
So, for people working on developer tools (compilers, debuggers, IDEs, many other things), how did you get into it?— Jordan Rose (@UINT_MIN) November 2, 2015
I got many interesting responses, but one of them asked if I had any recommendations for books on compilers.
Oh gosh. Books? Books about computer science? I’m actually not very well-read: while I’ve been programming since I was a kid, I “only” have an undergraduate formal education. That means the set of books I’ve read about CS is rather haphazard. But I suppose I do have a few things that come to mind.
