What makes a developer a "professional developer"? Getting paid? Getting quoted? Publishing a book? Let's take a look at this.

This book looks at the traits that define a professional developer. Not the hard tech skills, those change with the tools being used. These are the soft and quasi-soft skills that developers have to master to be considered a professional developer.

Just bought and re-read “Going Pro” by @CalEvans. Trying to re-read the universal truths at least once a quarter.

    Cal Evans has been a developer for more than 30 years. He is not a digital native, he is a digital pioneer who helped settle the wild west of the World Wide Web. 

    "Uncle Cal's Career Advice for Developers" is the text behind his keynote talk at php [tek] 2017 of the same title. It is a short read in which he gives developers five pieces of advice to ponder when thinking about their career.
