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.
