Productivity blueprint for programmers who want to get ahead
The Career Design Patterns soft skills framework consists of four collections.
Your internal operating system
How easy is it to swap out an OS while keeping the exact same software, tools and user experience with which users are comfortable? The operating system is the core application that drives most all of interactions and enables the add-on software to function. It’s just as tough to replace your internal operating system and become someone completely different. Instead, focus on refactoring the critical bits that are impeding your personal progress.
We help programmers refactor their internal operating system and implement best-practice behaviors to increase confidence, productivity and effectiveness.
