A Message from the Author

I wrote this book specifically for students in college who want to begin a career as a software engineer, developer, coder, code ninja, or whatever you want to call yourself.

Graduating with a computer science degree does not automatically translate into you being a developer. That will come, but it will not be automatic, despite what your college adviser might have told you when you selected your degree.

As someone who teaches developers and runs a business that hires all levels of developers, I know a few things about what employers are looking for in new employees. Plus, I have over twenty years of experience with developers. And I always say, don’t just learn to code - learn to become a developer.
