As a software developer, I regularly scour the web for free e-books in order to suppliment my collection of reference materiel for my profession and to further extend my limited budget. Here are my latest finds and updates to links for books I (or others) may have posted previously. Some are books targeted specifically for the developer audience and others have a much broader application. Hopefully you will find something useful, enjoy!
