Punch Fear In The Face

About the Book

As a software developer for many years, Dave Rael felt there was something more he wanted to offer to make a greater contribution to the state of the art and the state of humanity. Fear stood in the way of Dave making that happen. After finding the right motivation and the right incremental steps toward greater involvement in professional communities around software development, he found that creating a podcast was the next step in moving forward. Now, with an audience and a message and the experience of connecting personally with numerous developers, he has a story to share. Learn from these experiences so that you, too, can "punch fear in the face" and live a life more aligned with what you seek.

About the Author

Dave Rael

Dave Rael is the host of the Developer On Fire podcast. He is, first and foremost, a father of 3 wonderful children. That is the role in which he takes the most joy and gets the most benefit. He is also a husband, podcaster, software developer and architect, and a philosopher. When he’s not playing with kids, recording and listening to his own voice, or building distributed systems, he likes to play basketball and racquetball, and lift weights. His mission is to inspire others, expose the humanity of developers, improve communication, and unify humans.
