The Imposter’s Handbook


Don’t have a CS degree? Neither do I! That’s why I wrote these books: to fill the gaps in my career. The result? Two volumes and 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. I decided to change that in 2014. I looked up all of the topics that a typical CS degree covers and then I dove in – and then I wrote about it. This is an ebook and comes in epub, mobi and PDF formats. If you want a print version, there’s a link below.
