The Passionate Programmer

The last book for this week is The Passionate Programmer by Chad Fowler.

I really want to travel back in time and give this book to my younger self. The one that was bored in his job and yelled at by a few stupid managers. To quit that job was one of the best things that happend to me. But I was forced to do it and should have done it earlier.

After reading this book you will reevaluate your live as a developer. Your chosen path. You will recheck everything. In short: this book tries to get you passionate again for your job. Don’t just do it, love it.

You will see yourself with different eyes after reading this book. At least I did. Now I have to act on it.

Polyglot Developer

I am a freelance polyglot developer and love HTML5, testing, JavaScript, Ruby and Elixir. In the last 20 years I have been in lots of different roles, from Java to Elixir, from backend developer at a 3 people team in an early phase startup to the CTO of a web agency. Some of my work can be seen on my projects page.

Need help developing your MVP or to add new features into your current app? Need a CTO or a front/backend developer for hire? Send me an email.
