Code Connected Volume 1
The title of this book for programmers, "Code Connected", is a homage to Steve McConnell's "Code Complete", which was easily one of the best books on software development ever written. Code Connected focuses on the basic skill of producing working code, in minimal form, to answer a wide diversity of problems. All the problems are related one way or another to distributed applications, and the answers all, in one way or another, use ZeroMQ.
