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.
