Must… warn… others…

Having survived my first couple of decades as a professional software engineer and manager, I’m sharing some things I wish I’d know earlier.

The Prime Directive of this blog is to always be worth your time. Each entry aims to be short and sweet, where “sweet” means either immediately useful or damned interesting. Some posts are niche, with lots of code, but there’s also a fair amount of advice regarding career growth and technical project management.
