This answer was rated:

I know the fundamental programming concepts with java, C++, PHP, JavaScript. I know about data structures.

Before I continue learning more languages I want to build meaningful projects. Are there any good books that will teach you about development that you will use in the workplace? I want to go into a job and be fully ready and not need someone to hold my hand.

What is next for me to learn? Design patterns, MVC, frameworks, API's?

Pradeep :

Dear Sir,

Pradeep :

Welcome to Just Answer!
I shall assist you in your queries.

Pradeep :

It is great to know that, you have learnt C++, PHP, Javascript.

Pradeep :

Out of these the C++ is core language which every programmer should learn. C++ has always been a backbone of every programming language.

Pradeep :

Now that you have learnt this, I would like to suggest you to take a look at the database part as every real world project will always have a database component in it. To start off with, you can go ahead with learning MySQL along with PHP, then move to other database engines.

Pradeep :

After you have a got a sound knowledge of the database, move to the practice area. Then finally you can go ahead with understanding the design patterns.

Pradeep :

Design patterns is the base of all the big sized projects. They will help you a lot in understanding more about the code & effective implementations of data structures along with OOPS concept. Only when you are thorough with the design patterns, finally move ahead with getting knowledge of MVC/ Framework.

Pradeep :

Let me know, if I can assist you more on this. I shall be always available to do so.

Pradeep :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX like what I am looking for. Just one more thing. I see that book is from the 90's, can you please find a perfect book for me that is more modern? within the last few years.

Hi,

The latest version what I could find out was 2002, but that was published under limited edition. Though, old version the concepts & examples will remain same.

I would recommend you, not to worry & go for it. It will defniltey help you. Regarding comparison, I find this as the best option to go about design patterns.

Pradeep
