Building a Career in Software Book Description:
Software engineering instruction has a problem: universities and bootcamps teach aspiring engineers to write code, but they abandon graduates to teach themselves the countless encouraging tools needed to flourish in real applications companies. Building a Career in Software is the answer, a comprehensive guide to the essential skills that instructors don’t need and professionals never believe to teach: landing jobs, choosing projects and teams, asking great questions, conducting meetings, going on-call, debugging creation problems, technical writing, making the most of a mentor, and even more.
In more than a decade building applications at companies including Apple and Uber, Daniel Heller has mentored and managed tens of engineers from a variety of training backgrounds, and those engineers inspired this publication with their countless questions about career issues and day-to-day issues.
Designed for either random accessibility or cover-to-cover reading, it offers concise treatments of any non-technical challenge you may face in the initial five years of your career–as well as a selection of industry-focused technical topics rarely covered in training. Whatever your instruction or technical specialty, Building a Career in Software can save years of trial and error and help you succeed as a real-world software professional.
