About the Book

The Balanced Developer is a novel about a Junior developer named Lewis that lands his first job and entering the fast-paced world of IT. Over the duration of the book, he is presented with challenges, moments of inspiration and develops an understanding of what is required to develop a successful career. 

Inside this book, we will explore stories, lessons & techniques I have gathered over a decade of software development moving from Junior Developer to Software Architect. I want to share these valuable experiences with you to help you transform your career into the next steps.

If you are ready to understand what it takes to take that step forward then this book is for you.

Together with the characters created and stories in this book that resonate with my experiences, we will explore what it means to be a balanced developer.
