About the Book
I'm 36 years old software developer. A principal engineer. In these eleven chapters, I share with you different challenges, events, situations that I encountered during your my while you're working towards my goals seeking senior positions.
There is a fair chance that you'll face these patterns too. Maybe you already lived them through.
While nobody's career can serve as a concrete recipe for success - and in any case, you have to define first what success means to you -, you can and should take ideas from other people's life and implement them in your career.
In this book, you will read about many helpful ideas to work on and pitfalls to avoid. It'd be hard to pick three items but if I must, here they are:
- Define your own definition of success
- Don't be afraid and learn to ask
- Speak up for your team and for yourself
About the Author
I am a C++ software craftsman with strong Python working in the tourism and hospitality industry and an enthusiastic blogger writing about coding, books, and the importance of stoic philosophy in a software developer's life.
I moved to software development from database operations which means that I don't just care about delivering a product as fast as possible, but I do understand the importance of stability and maintainability.
I'm passionate about delivering clean solutions, but I find even more important to help my teams to constantly raise the bar and to (re)focus on quality and clean code. I do this by explaining how high-quality work will help them in their individual careers, by introducing more meaningful development processes and automation and by teaching them industry best practices.
