A guide for aspiring Developers and junior developers to learn anything there is to know to successfully start their career in tech
About the Book
Software Development is a great industry and I have always been an advocate for supporting people to get into this industry, no matter their background or education. The aim of this book is to provide you al the information you require to start and progress your career in tech.
The content of this book is going to cover a variety of topics. We will start by explaining how the industry is structured, the jobs titles and the languages available. We will learn how to stay up to date with new technologies, and investigate many different learning techniques that will help you progress and learn your first programming language.
Next, we will highlight some important topics which are usually overseen by self-taught developers such as Git and project management using Agile methodologies and learn their importance as you build your foundation.
By the end of the book, we will deep dive into the world of interviews, where I am going to share all my experience with interviews and negotiation, with the hope of giving you that little extra push you need to get your first job.
Lastly, we will cover some technical advice sharing a few words on what I define as “Clean Code” and handy software needed to help you strengthen the foundation for a fruitful career
