Description

Technical knowledge alone isn't enough - increase your software development income by leveling up your soft skills

Early in his software developer career, John Sonmez discovered that technical knowledge alone isn't enough to break through to the next income level - developers need "soft skills" like the ability to learn new technologies just in time, communicate clearly with management and consulting clients, negotiate a fair hourly rate, and unite teammates and coworkers in working toward a common goal.

What you will learn in this book:

  • How to systematically find and fill the gaps in your technical knowledge so you can face any new challenge with confidence
  • Should you take contract work - or hold out for a salaried position? Which will earn you more, what the tradeoffs are, and how your personality should sway your choice
  • Should you learn JavaScript, C#, Python, C++? How to decide which programming language you should master first
  • Ever notice how every job ever posted requires "3-5 years of experience," which you don't have? Simple solution for this frustrating chicken-and-egg problem that allows you to build legitimate job experience while you learn to code
  • Is earning a computer science degree a necessity - or a total waste of time? How to get a college degree with maximum credibility and minimum debt
  • Coding boot camps - some are great, some are complete scams. How to tell the difference so you don't find yourself cheated out of $10,000
  • Interviewer tells you, "Dress code is casual around here - the development team wears flipflops." What should you wear?
  • How do you deal with a boss who's a micromanager. Plus how helping your manager with his goals can make you the MVP of your team
  • The technical skills that every professional developer must have - but no one teaches you (most developers are missing some critical pieces, they don't teach this stuff in college, you're expected to just "know" this)

Good read for developers of all experience

I've come to almost the same conclusions when it comes to software development and dealing with people. To name a few:
- your first programming language is not that important
- learning next programming languages is way easier than 1st one
- it's worth invensting in yourself (education, clothes, etc.)
- people judge you by the way you dress (whether you like it or not)
- soft skills are really important for software developers
- in order to advance your career you cannot be "quiet"

What I've learnt:
- it's a good idea to become more popular (blogs, podcasts, talks)
- starting realistic, simple project and sticking to it is better than having many complicated ideas that will never get finished
- as a boss/leader you shouldn't be micromanaging employees

What I didn't like:
- I disagree that it's really that important to have CV prepared by professional company
- I'm not sure about making friends with HR before interview and buying them lunch. In company that I work for all the employees had to go through training that was really against such behaviours
- a little bit too much promotion in my opinion. Author was really honest about this in the book, but I still feel that a lot of time was spent on marketing.

To sum up I've really appreciated this book and I sincerely recommend it.

Less Learning, and More Self-Help

This book is a collection of stories that have nothing to do with the practical application of how to's and where to start. It's more about you can do it and don't give up. Waste of money, grab code complete instead.

Gimmicky and obnoxious

Had such a hard time getting past all the egomaniac self promotion so I figured I should go check out the links he is spending half the audio promoting... wow what a rude awakening it was to see what kind of creep he is with his “bulldog mindset”. I have returned the book. No way I want advice from this kind of person.

not worth your time

very repetitive and low quality information. This book is garbage. You can find all this information on just about any internet search, save yourself the time in listening to this and practice coding instead.

Excellent! Highly recommended audiobook!

I am a novice programmer, with almost a year of experience in Autonomous Driving Systems Manual Test Engineering/ QA. This audio book is great! The information John provided hit every point; answering a number of questions I had as I plan my learning path in python programming and preparing my career in development. I was even able to use John’s teachings in the operations of my tattoo studio, and project management for my content writing business. I am very entrepreneurial; this book and John’s information filled website helped me fill some holes with many questions answered! I have recommended this book to a number of tech savvy comrades.

The Complete Bro-grammer's Career Guide

It's nice to have all of this information condensed in one source but it is all very superficial and nothing that you can't find on free blogs and message boards. Most of it is just common sense and he comes off as really arrogant and pushes his other books on you. What really lost my interest was when he compared selling yourself for an internship to imposing yourself on women to get a date. He claims to be a dating coach (what can't this douche do?) and says that all women are secretly wanting you to impose on them, that they secretly want you even though they say no. As a single women with lots of female friends I can assure you that if a woman gives you signals that she's not interested, she is definitely not interested. This belief perpetuates rape culture and is completely false. Women are not fickle mysterious creatures. We are straight forward human beings if you listen and pay attention. Yes, if you are super pushy and a narcissist that doesn't take no for an answer then eventually you will find someone who will give in. I would not recommend this asshole approach for selling yourself as a future employee or as a romantic partner.

This book singlehandedly turned my life around ❤️

i started as a cs student. I moved away from my parents, lived a miserable life alone on the lie of attending college and was in deep depression. When I came back after a year, I knew I had to do something with my life. i learned by myself and kicked myself into the ass. That's what I thought. After another year I was stuck at a bad job with no sign of improvement and I looked for podcasts to listen to. This is how I found The SimpleProgrammmer. I've listened to John, read his advice and taken it to heart. I heard about his book and first read soft skills. Finishing this book, I got the news that just this week "The complete software developer's career guide" came out as an audiobook. I instantly took my piggy bank and smashed it open so hard that even the strongest titans would have feared me, that's how much I was convinced by his other book "This has to be life-changing". And boy was I right!!

John has a wonderful way of being as honest as he can and tell from his experience and the reality, as opposed to some theory. His wisdom gained through his own discipline and experience is as genuine as you can get it. It's straight on hard facts just how you need it. There's no time to waste, the best time to have gained the knowledge of this book is yesterday, if not a year ago. I really can't recommend this book enough, it really opened my eyes and gave me the insight I needed right now to stand up and get shit done. He, John Sonmez, is the kind of programmer you'd love hanging out with and don't want to disappoint. He's a true brogrammer! (Had to say that, you can't judge me for that it's just way too good)

Zu US-Amerikanisch

Der Autor dieses Buches scheint den Erfolg einer Karriere nur danach zu bemessen wie schnell jemand es schafft wie viel Geld zu verdienen.
Ich habe nach ein paar Kapiteln aufgehört mir das anzuhören. Als Softwareentwickler kann man recht problemlos ausreichend Geld verdienen und darüber hinaus gibt es eine ganze Menge anderer Werte, die man in der Karriere berücksichtigen sollte als reine Geldmaximierung.

Great for beginners, interesting for advanced devs

Great listen! The audio version also offers side notes where John adds interesting stories and info to the original book. Also John is a motivational speaker, so he speaks very well ;)

I think beginners will benefit most from this book to remove confusion and misunderstandings about the software industry.

I have already a few years of experience in software development but I still could find some motivation and gain some insights into debugging, testing, careers, certificqtes, learning and ethics. I wrote a blog about it which you will find on datagoodie.com

Ein paar nützliche Insights

Ich war hauptsächlich am letzten Kapitel des Buches interessiert und habe sonst fast alles übersprungen. Ich hätte mir mehr Tiefe beim Thema Building a Personal Brand gewünscht, aber ich denke insgesamt haben sich die 10€ rentiert und ich habe neues Wissen und Motivation bekommen
