The Passionate Programmer was published in 2009 and I’ve had it sitting in my bookshelf for more than six months. I asked myself; why didn’t I read this earlier? It’s a book for any developer who wants more from their career than to just sit at their desk, write code from nine to five and then go home. The underpinnings of this book is that you should treat your career as a business and you should build and market it just as seriously as you would with any other critical product.
