As a developer, your image and your mind are your product. So to get what you’ve never had, you must do what you’ve never done with these precious tools. If you want to make a bigger impact, raise your income, and code with purpose, this course will outline the path to get you there. This course is about making a paradigm shift in how you manage your career. We’ll discuss concrete activities and skills that transform average developers into outliers. You’ll learn why developers can't afford cable, ways to improve your “luck surface area”, and techniques to compress your career through accelerated development. You'll learn the foundational skills for becoming an outlier: command your time, hack your image, and own your trajectory. Prepare to think about your development career in a whole new way.
The Outlier Motivation Hi. I'm Cory House with Pluralsight, and this is Becoming an Outlier, Reprogramming the Developer Mind. You can catch me on my blog at bitnative. com, or on Twitter @housecor. In this first module, we'll discuss the Outlier Motivation. Every great course has a clear goal for transforming the student in some concrete way. It's out to change you. And this course is no exception. Yet in most Pluralsight courses, transformation is about increasing your expertise in a specific technology. The typical goal for the transformation is to walk away with practical software development skills. This course is different. It's about transforming the way you think about, and manage your career. My goal is lofty. I want to radically accelerate your development career, and I aim to do this by helping to rethink how you're spending your time, changing how you're perceived, and giving you skills to change the trajectory of your career. Now be forewarned. This is not a course for the masses. In fact, as we'll soon see, it's arguably illogical to stretch to levels that we're going to discuss in this course. But if you want to standout, make a bigger impact, have more options, and code everyday with a genuine sense of purpose, I invite you to join me in this conversation.
