Publisher's Summary

We've made a dent into the 21st century, and software has been eating the world. Suspenseful tech dramas play out in the news, boot camps churn out entry-level developers in a matter of months, and there's even an HBO show dedicated to Silicon Valley.

In the midst of these trends lies a severe lack of attention to the daily life of the developer - the day-to-day reality that surrounds each line of code. There are plenty of resources available to help the budding developer learn how to code, but what about everything else?

Who should listen to this audiobook?

This audiobook is for anyone interested in getting a sneak peek inside the world of software!

  • The new graduates about to jump into their first jobs
  • The veterans who want a dose of nostalgia and a good chuckle
  • The product managers looking to empathize more with their coding counterparts
  • The disgruntled developers contemplating the meaning of life
  • The high school students thinking about jumping on the computer-science bandwagon
  • The budding programmers looking to become more effective and gain more leverage at work

What's inside the audiobook?

This audiobook is a highlight reel of content revolving around the software developer's life.

Inside, you will find 40 concise chapters covering five broad topics:

  • Career
  • Learning
  • Coding
  • Daily life
  • Stories

Everyone has something unique to share. This audiobook gathers together various perspectives and unique stories to give a well-rounded view of modern software development.

This is not a technical audiobook. This is everything else.

This book is a hidden gem!

I started with the expectations of some software developer life stories. But this book is packed with relatable experience and insightful wisdom. The lessons here are particularly useful for people new to this industry or only been in tech for a few years.
