About the Book

This book delivers practical techniques, habits, attitudes, and perspectives developers can cultivate in order to consistently perform at their best as professional software developers.  If you are a developer, this book will help you enjoy a long and rewarding career and avoid the grind and drudgery that so many developers encounter.

I promise if you follow the ideas in this book, you will:

  • Enjoy your work more
  • Be more productive
  • Become a technical leader in your team or organization
  • Gain respect from your colleages
  • Get a promotion or find a better job
  • Earn more by increasing your value to your employer

If that's not worth $39 to you, then you can hardly call yourself a professional developer.

If you don't find the content valuable, you can get always your money back!

There is no code in this book.  We do not discuss technical matters.  Non-developers who have an interest in the productivity of software developers or who are just curious about the discipline may also find the material of interest.
