Thinking Beyond Coding

93 pages1 hour


Are software developers merely coders, or are we something more?

I spent 11 years developing software, and I’m still amazed at all we do. This book is for anyone thinking about a development career or curious about the odd people who choose that path. No coding experience necessary!

In this book I’ll describe developers and share what I’ve learned about the career. Topics include:

"From Here to There": How to get started, the role of college, and the interview process
"Daily Life": The developer's many tasks
"Simplify": A brief look at development history
"People vs. Process": Why corporate processes so often go wrong
