Complete Software Developer's Career Guide
You'd be hard-pressed to find a harder working guy than John Sonmez. Between his countless YouTube videos, 50-odd Pluralsight courses and his ability to maintain three careers all while regularly lifting heavy things - John knows what it means to build systems, set goals and be successful along the way.
Managing a developer career in today's environment is no easy task. Beyond being good at code, you need to make so many decisions. You need to decide what to learn, when to learn it, and when to apply that knowledge. And this all in the face of technologies that change literally on a daily basis.
On top of that you have to learn to work with others, market yourself as either an employee or an entrepreneur of some sort, and do this all while trying to have some fun :)
This is where John's comprehensive book, "The Complete Software Developer's Career Guide" comes in - rather than trying to figure it all our yourself, you can learn from the successes and failures of someone who's been there.

- The myth of work/life balance
