Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual by John Sonmez isn’t only a book about software development, but also it illustrates many aspects of modern life.
It goes into several topics like work, career, interview tips, employment, freelancing, finances, personal attitude, soft skills, and how to correctly market yourself.
Many people think this is a bad thing, but believe me when i say John does a great job explaining the right way to do it.
This last thing may seem strange to a lot of developers out there. But believe me, it’s really important to set aside from the crowd, and make yourself noticeable among all others.
You don’t go out spamming people with emails or on social networks. You do it by creating a good reputation, either by helping others or creating good content.
The book is divided into several small chapters, so if you want to read only the pieces that you judge are more important to you right now, you can do it. Or you will want to read the book cover to cover. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.
