Efficient Developer [Early Access]

The missing book for ambitious software developers.

Software development is not only about programming. It is about collaboration during the whole software development lifecycle that includes product specification, software estimation, testing and documentation. It is about the proper usage of the command line and version control, about debugging, code reviews, and other necessary practices. And finally - it is about working smart. That means using the right tools at the right time, knowing when to prototype code and when not to write code at all. It is about delivering a solution based on requirements. Or without them.

The book Efficient Developer is exactly about that. It is about us - software developers - and how to do our job efficiently.

Who is it for?

This book is for everyone who is on their journey to become a senior developer or a development leader. I wrote it as an essential manual for somewhat mid-level developers that want to take their skills further.

What is inside?

The early access version will get regular updates so that you can start reading today and follow along once new chapters become available. The whole book will be finished in Q4 2021.

  • Working Smarter
  • Software Development Lifecycle
  • Command Line (Now available)
  • Writing Code
  • Code Management

As it is still early to produce the final table of contents, the content is subject to change.

  • High-quality PDF with clickable links and syntax-highlighted code examples
