Your development stack is cutting edge—for 1999…

Your coworkers laughed when they
caught you learning on your lunch break…

Your boss is only “agile” when he’s
dodging questions about that raise he promised…

And as you wedge yet another bug fix into that
monster 10,000-line class you wonder…
Am I Trapped In This
“Code Monkey” Job
For The Rest Of My Life?
Or can you finally find work that energizes you…

Solving challenging, real-world problems…

With a team of professionals who take pride in their work…

And even get paid what you’re actually worth?

Dear Fellow Software Developer,

I still remember the moment when my boss pushed me over the edge.

One minute my boss, Tom Shirkey, is pulling me into the conference room for a little “sidebar” chat…

Next thing I know, something inside me snaps and I’m screaming into his face at the top of my lungs—while he yells right back.

And it took everything in me not to…
Punch That Micro-Managing Weenie
Right In The Face!

Now I’m not proud of this shouting match. It was definitely a low point in my software development career.

But he really did have it coming…

Tom was easily the worst part of the worst job I ever had.

Every morning when I walked through that front door my stomach clenched into knot. I counted down every second of every day, and when 5 p.m. rolled around I hit that door running…

And back when Tom was making every day a living hell, I had no idea what the future had in store for me.

^^ Me during my “awkward phase.” If you’d told me back then that I’d one day mentor millions of software developers (and even retire at 32), I would have thought you were crazy.

I didn’t know that I’d one day become a leader in the developer community thanks to Simple Programmer, my blog that reaches more than 1 million devs a year.

I didn’t know that I’d go on to create 55 PluralSight training courses on topics ranging from Java to iOS to GoLang, or write the best-selling book, Soft Skills: The Software Developer’s Life Manual.

I didn’t know that I’d someday headline at international developer conferences like Ordev and Xamarin Evolve, or have major corporations like Verizon knocking on my door to consult with me at $500 an hour.

And I really had no idea that I’d achieve my lifelong dream of early retirement—and that I’d reach that goal before my 33rd birthday.

Back then, all I knew is that…
