50 Quick Motivations, Inspirations, & Insights for Developers

About the Book

Being a developer is a skill for the elite and even though it is a rewarding career it can still be stressful at times. Luckily the positives far outweigh the negatives. As developers and even human beings we need to make sure we don’t take for granted the gift we’ve been given. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little reminder of why being a developer is one of the best career choices and for that reason we should be happy.

Many of the motivations and inspirations in this book are for developers and some are targeted at personal self development. Being a well-rounded individual will also dramatically help your development skills and your career.
