Decades as a self-taught programmer. There are so many things I didn’t know…
Don’t have a CS degree? Neither do I! That’s why I wrote this book: to fill the gaps in my career. The result? 700+ pages of essentials skills and ideas every developer should know.
I’m a self-taught developer, and for most of my career, I’ve learned what was required to get the job done. When conversations veered toward core concepts, I disengaged.
I decided to change all of this in 2014. I sat down and looked up all of the topics that a typical CS degree covers and then I dove in. Halfway through, I decided to write a book about what I was learning.
