9 Must read books for developers by Uncle Bob Martin

Last week Uncle Bob Martin gave a speech in my company about Components and Architecture.
Needless to say it was a great pleasure and fun to listen to him.
At the end of the speech, during the Q&A, a guy asked him which books he considers to be a must in order to improve your dev skills, so here we go with the 9 books a developer should read in his career:
  1. Structure and implementation of computer programs
  2. Controlling Software Projects: Management, Measurement, and Estimates
  3. The element of programming style
  4. The mythical man-month
  5. Design pattern elements of reusable object-oriented software
  6. Extreme programming
  7. The deadline
  8. The pragmatic programmer
  9. The passionate programmer
Hope you will have some free time to read these fundamental books!

Note on the picture : I was lucky enough to capture him passing in front of a slide of my opensource library at some point during the speech :)
