During my 20+ years in the software community, I've picked up on a common set of patterns that surround developers who always seemed to excel in their careers. Developers who had the best careers seemed to do a specific set of things that other developers did not. This course lays out the principles, and how to apply them to your software career. No single checklist guarantees success, but following these principles will improve your chances of finding success. There are probably some additional items we could add, and you could argue that some of these are more important than others. But from my experience, these are the core set of things you need to do to have a better career in software.
