The most effective engineers — the ones who have risen to become distinguished engineers and leaders at their companies — can produce 10 times the impact of other engineers, but they’re not working 10 times the hours.
They’ve internalized a mindset that took meyearsof trial and error to figure out. I’m going to share that mindset with you — along with hundreds of actionable techniques and proven habits — so you can shortcut those years.
Introducing The Effective Engineer— the only book designed specifically for today’s software engineers, based on extensive interviews with engineering leaders at top tech companies, and packed with hundreds of techniques to accelerate your career.
For two years, I embarked on a quest seeking an answer to one question:
How do the most effective engineers make their efforts, their teams, and their careers more successful?
I interviewed and collected stories from engineering VPs, directors, managers, and other leaders at today’s top software companies: established, household names like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn; rapidly growing mid-sized companies like Dropbox, Square, Box, Airbnb, and Etsy; and startups like Reddit, Stripe, Instagram, and Lyft.
These leaders shared stories about the most valuable insights they’ve learned and the most common and costly mistakes that they’ve seen engineers — sometimes themselves — make.
