The book is everything you need in a typical career path of a software engineer or developer, from starting at a company as a fresher or new grad to senior software engineer.
It summarizes what I learned while being a software developer and how I mentored software engineers/developers at different stages in their careers over the last couple of years.
When I started my career as a developer, I was constantly looking for a mentor who can guide me in my career growth. Initial few years I didn't get a mentor but back in 2014 I met my mentor who changed my life
I discuss my all bottlenecks with my mentor & he suggested me some awesome tips & tricks to become an incredible developer And I'm going to share it all in my book.
As a senior software engineer, I mentored dozens of software engineers, helping people level up faster. However, I still did not have a single book to recommend, which would recap the type of advice I found myself repeating.
I want to be honest with you: you will not get an overnight upgrade.
Growing and becoming better takes time, effort, dedication, and discipline, as well as reframing into a growth mindset.
