There are a lot of books and authors who shared language and tech stack independent knowledge. Because these skills will not age out soon, therefore it is recommended for every developer to read, understand and use them.
In this post I am gathering some literature I have read or watched through the years of my carrier and may be useful for you and I will try to expand it later on.
