Simple Programmer with John Sonmez

Software engineers have a skill set that can be applied to solve problems outside of a codebase. Analytical skills can be used to evaluate investment opportunities. Creative thinking can be used to build businesses. Communication skills can be used to build and enhance relationships.

John Sonmez is a software engineer who created the Simple Programmer, a community of developers who discuss strategies around software, business, and life. He joined me on the show to discuss these topics and others, as well as his new book The Complete Software Developer’s Career Guide.

Software Engineering Daily is looking for sponsors for Q3. If your company has a product or service, or if you are hiring, Software Engineering Daily reaches 23,000 developers listening daily. Send me an email:
