Better Software Development
About the Bundle
Bringing together both the technical and soft skills you need to succeed as a developer, this bundle features the Git Workbook for must-have technical command of your source control tool, and includes N Ways To Be A Better Developer to help you to continue to learn and grow as a developer. Both books are technology-agnostic and aimed at developers everywhere.
N Ways To Be A Better Developer
With over 25 years of combined experience as software developers, we share some of the lessons we have learned throughout our careers. Without diving into technical details and without focusing on any particular programming language, we analyze the nature of the developer and find patterns that help developers become better at their job. The book is based on our own careers: it's a reflection of what we've done right and wrong and analysing what got us to where we are today.
It is also based on the progression we have seen in so many developers. The both of us have not only worked as developers but we've also hired developers, managed developers, trained developers and coached developers. We've also spoken to many developers at conferences and in our developer communities. There are some common patterns that we recognize when we look at developers. We've seen things that work, we've seen things that didn't work. We've seen developers grow from shy fresh-out-of-college coders to super software architects. We've also seen developers wither away and never really progress. Being able to work with so many developers has helped us form an opinion on what we think are the key aspects that move developers forward.
The book is based on a number of keynotes we have delivered at developer conferences, where we talked about our experience as and with developers. The presentations and the book have a common goal: we hope that by sharing our insights, we help other developers become more succesful.
Note: the book is in early beta stages. We will be updating and enhancing it regularly. Buying the book before it's finished gives you early access to its contents, and will encourage us to continuously improve the book.
Self-Study Guide to Git
Learn git by doing! Each section teaches a specific skill or solves a specific problem - and each one includes a practical exercise for you to work through yourself. This deliberate practice means you will quickly pick up familiarity with all the git commands you need, and be able to use this tool for your own purposes. The short sections make this book ideal for those who are pushed for time as it can easily fit into short units of time rather than requiring sustained study.
This book assumes nothing, so beginners can begin at the beginning. More experienced users may choose to jump straight into the sections about rebasing or working with tracking branches - it's totally up to you!
