How To Become A One-Person Software Development Team
Most books about the intricacies of working in software development focus on the dynamics of coordinated team, but not all of us are in that position. Peers to learn from? Colleagues to bounce ideas off? Managers to lead the charge? These are foreign luxuries to us. I’ve spent the majority of my career establishing IT presences in previously technology illiterate companies, and my isolation meant I had to learn best practices the hard way. The life of the lone programmer is unforgiving, and through sheer blind ignorance I messed up as often as I succeeded.
The Solo Coder is a handbook for all those software engineers and systems administrators battling unaided against the odds. By the end of this book you’ll know just what you need to establish an organised and consistent approach to working alone. You’ll find nothing unusual in here; just a concise and simple process to help you organise your environment, your code, and yourself, to keep fighting the good fight.
So whether you’re a solo freelancer or the lone IT body in a company of non-techies: it’s time to show everyone what you’re made of. Best of all, The Solo Coder: How To Become A One-Person Software Development Team, is available for free; you can download the complete ebook in EPUB, MOBI and PDF formats right here.
