Here's what I'm doing now, as I've left Uber - and full time employment. Here are ways you can connect with me.
The Pragmatic Engineer Newsletter
I'm writing the #1 newsletter for engineering managers and senior engineers on Substack. Weekly issues with actionable advice for engineering leaders. Especially relevant for those in big tech and high-growth startups.
Writing a Book
I have been writing a book on growing as a software engineer for close to two years. I'm expecting to publish in 2022. Sign up here to get notified of the release, or progress. Want to help? Share your experience on growing as a software engineer to help tweak contents. Thank you!
My published books:
- Building Mobile Apps at Scale. Free until 31 May, as a PDF.
- Growing as a Mobile Engineer
- The Tech Resume Inside Out. This book is free for any developer out of a job. If you are on Goodreads, feel free to add it to your queue or rate/review it.
This Blog and YouTube
I've been lucky in having worked at a high-growth phase of venture-backed companies the past 8 years. Skype, Skyscanner and Uber were all in rapid growth phase when I joined. I learned a lot just by being around this time - and I also took on challenges that would have otherwise not been available.
Advising and Angel Investing
I tend to invest or advise startups with a focus on platform engineering (monorepos, mobile tooling, service discoverability & ownership, internal tooling) or payments: both areas are ones I'm deeply familiar with.
I'm writing advice for senior and above engineers, and engineering managers for preparing for Big Tech interviews. Sign up here.
I no longer do mentoring.
If you have a career related question as a senior or above engineer or engineering manager, consider submitting it as a question for my newsletter. I tackle topics related to engineering managers in newsletter issues.
I do recommend mentorship for faster growth and here is a list of places you can find great software engineer or engineering manager mentors.
