Hi Substack. Hope you are staying cool.
I’ve posted a couple of significant pieces in the last week. The Contagion riffs on communication ideas I started to write about in How to Build a Rurmor. We, as a species, have wasted so much of our lives with crap information… it was therapeutic for me to write more.
The second article is The Business 2023. This is a massive revision of my original article over a decade ago. This piece walks you through how to value your current total compensation so you can properly evaluate future offer letters. Most of the revision involves rethinking the stock section in the new world of restricted stock units.
The Business 2023 is included in the revision to Being Geek, which is now titled The Software Developer Career Handbook, which I am delighted to announce will be available around August 16th, with the EBook being available a few days earlier. More on this revision in a future update.
