Deal With It. That's a strong phrase, right?
One interpretation is; “here’s how it is, you have to put up with it”. It can be a bratty, unilateral, condescending, dismissive statement.
Another interpretation is; “let’s cope with things how they are, but work hard to change them for the better”. An encompassing, generous, creative statement.
This book is about choosing which of these two statements you want to embrace as a software professional.
It's about choosing how you, as a software developer, deal with our industry and your day-to-day work.
What are people saying about Deal With It?

"Started reading #attitudeforcoders, planning to skim. Ended up devouring it all in one go. *Excellent* stuff" - Owen Phelps
"Loved @gavD_UK's book for coders - insight, advice, and lots of humour from one of the best developers I've worked with" - Craig Marvelley
