How to Make Your Career Suck Less

Once upon a time, you were young, you had dreams, hopes, high ambitions. You wanted a career in tech, you wanted to make a difference. You thought that you could achieve it all by being a team player, listening to your manager, hunkering down, working hard … Oh you sweet summer child.

How to Make Your Career Suck Less is my upcoming anti-hero book slash guide that aims to provide the reader – the disenchanted reader, the disillusioned techie, YOU – with practical tips and tricks, honest down-to-earth advice, and tangible suggestions on how to navigate the perilious waters of the modern tech world.

In this book, I strive to answer questions, dilemmas and conundra like how to handle micro-managers, how to create your first open-source project, your first conference, your first big project, how to write a practical and useful CV, and then some. What to do, and what not to do. How to be sarcastic, a dinosaur, and yet happy and successful.

As always, you’ll get the usual dose of tongue-in-cheek curmudgeony Dedoimedo philosophy, the stuff you’ve learned to (hopefully) love and appreciate over the years. The book should hit the store shelves end of summer, early autumn. If you’d like to be an early reviewer, ping me.
