It all started a few years ago that I felt stuck in my career as a software developer. For years I’ve been following the typical way of learning and dabbling with new technologies, mainly in my spare time or on occasion on the day job. Tech was fun, and I always love learning new things. However, when I felt stuck I realized that my previous ways did bring me so far, but they do not take me any further. It doesn’t matter if you’re an employee, freelancer or owning a small agency. At some point, there’s a glass ceiling for money and the kind of work you do.
Last Update: September 2017
So, my journey of exploration started. In this article, I want to share with you some resources which helped me the most and got me reflecting on what to change and where I could go. Most of them are paid at some point, but they also offer a lot of free content which is IMHO valuable. Usually, I start using the free content, and for some I even paid; was well worth it.
I curate the list as I walk my journey. Feel free to recomnend yours.
Selling software or building a Saas are probably the first things in a developers mind. But it is not that easy.
If you are already freelancing or own a small agency you might be locked under the glass ceiling and even don’t realizing it. I think it even works when working as an employee.
I noticed the glass ceiling while being an employee and also with freelancing buddies, but I had a hard time pinpointing to a reason. The following resources gave me explanations and show me ways out.
No, not agile coaching. However, even you do not want to pursue coaching at all; I think you can transform what they teach to your situation.
Now it’s your turn to share what helped you :-)
