dev-book-cory-417x540Back in August, I wrote a post that turned out to be very popular and got some good response titled “Dear Developers, Here’s Some Advice for Your Career.

As I have said previously, if software is eating the world, and I believe it is, we — the businesses and startups focused on creating that software — need good, solid, dependable, knowledge, collaborative developers and more of you.

With this book, I want to help developers connect and adapt so that you can thrive in our startups and organizations, so that together, we can build software that changes the world.

In a nutshell, here are the 10 essential keys to having a great career as a  developer:

  1. Build Your Portfolio of Cool Projects That Work
  2. Get involved and contribute to an open source project.
  3. Remember, always & forever: It’s all about people.
  4. Good communication skills are almost as valuable and important as programming.
  5. Ship
  6. Park your arrogance at the door.
  7. Get out from behind a computer screen and meet people.
  8. Make sure you power down regularly.
  9. Always, always, always be learning and exploring.
  10. Pass it on.
