Complete Software Developer’s Career Guide

Back in 2014, John Sonmez wrote the book, “Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual”. It was a great book that I raved about in that post.

He’s back with another book that focuses solely on your career as a software developer. The title says it all … The Complete Software Developer’s Career Guide.

The book is launching today, and I’m grabbing it. But I wanted to get this post out here because the book is being launched at an unbeatable price of just 99 cents. That’s right, for less than a buck you can get the eBook for the next 48 hours.

If you’d prefer the paper back, it is currently $19, but I’m not sure how long it will remain at that price.

I’ll do a proper review once I read the book, but I have no problem recommending this book to you because of how good John’s first book was. I talk about it in the video this week.

You can grab the book here:

That is NOT an affiliate link. I’m not making money off this. I just know it is going to be good.

Dream Build Play is back!

Back in 2007 Microsoft had the first Dream Build Play contest. Yes, 10 years ago. Then it went away for a while … like 7 years or so…

But it is back! And I’m excited about it.

You can check it out here, or get a little history lesson and learn about something new by watching the video below:

James Ashley, a fellow HoloLens consultant (and fellow MVP), runs challenges for HoloLens developers. I’ve participated in a few early on

There is another one happening right now and goes until next Tuesday.

I worked on this live yesterday morning on the streaming service – Mixer. Feel free to follow me there if you are interested in seeing me doing live development (or gaming).

The demo I created utilized the spatial understanding code to place 5 Meme posters on the wall in the room.
