About the Book
A travel journal with a difference... In March and April 2018 Russ Miles, the Geek on a Harley and CEO of ChaosIQ, will be riding 5000 miles from San Francisco to the GOTO Chicago 2018 conference doing a free evening talk on many aspects of software development every stop he makes. This book is Russ's story of the journey, written and published during the tour, and woven together from the stories of production failures and incidents he encounters and that likely we all face someday.
Although this book is free, any optionally paid proceeds from this book will be donated to Girls Who Code.
