About the Author

James Hickey
James Hickey

About 2 years into my career, I realized that simply doing good work wasn't enough.

Then, I started to take ownership of my career.

By taking responsibility for my career, I've been able to find work that meets my personal needs (remote, etc.) and have grown my reputation. I've been featured by Microsoft, Lambda School, Steve "Ardalis" Smith's Weekly Dev Tips, and many other well-known publications and professionals.

Today, I help software developers grow in their technical skills and gain clarity for their career. You can visit for more.

I'm also known in the .NET community for my technical articles and open source project Coravel.
