Tech-wise, I have a certain permanent love for Knuth's magnum opus.      source
@Prathkum @ericksonodiaga you are hard core.. and I like that.. I started as a teen with Donald Knuth's @realDonaldKnuth The Art of Computer Programming series.. hilarious he had to stop midway circa 1973 & develop a better solution to book typesetting before completing Volumes 4 to 7.. Thx Donald !!      source
When I was a grad student, Knuth's book on algorithms was our handbook. His "boundary tag method" was the design I used for Frontier's object database.      source
