The Beginning Software Engineer's Playbook: Mental Frameworks and Advice for the Hard Things at Work and Beyond (Hardcover)
(This book cannot be returned nor exchanged.)
The Beginning Software Engineer's Playbook is a non-fictional guide/handbook for beginner and mid-level software engineers to navigate some of the often-overlooked parts of their career. This book contains habits, techniques, and mental frameworks to adopt and use in order to sustainably grow in their careers. It allows the reader to pull from my experiences, as I've faced many challenges dealing with giant code bases, navigating burnout and impostor syndrome, networking inside and outside of work for more opportunities, prioritizing physical and mental health during stressful sprints, and much, much more. What's really important to me is that this book empowers those who would like to enter the world of software engineering, are just now entering it, or are in the middle of their careers to benefit from my battle tested advice and mental frameworks. This is a practical playbook that you'll be able to revisit time and time again throughout your career in order to strategize on how to best tackle an issue or overcome an obstacle.
