## Essential Books Project

[Essential Programming Books](https://www.programming-books.io) project is a continuation of Stack Overflow Documentation, which ended in [August 2017](https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/354217/sunsetting-documentation).

The intent is to preserve that work and improve upon it.

Guiding principles behind Essential Books:
* driven by examples
* articles are small and heavily interlinked
* not limited by size

This is a collaborative project. Please [do contribute](how-to-contribute.md) new articles and improvements to existing articles.
