About this site

Hi, I am Alex πŸ‘‹ nice to meet you!

Every Sunday I share my knowledge and advice on writing great software, entrepreneurship, career advice and how to survive a software engineering job.

I also teach software engineering on my YouTube channel.

If you are a software engineer or engineering manager wanting to level up your career, then this is the place for you.

Still not convinced? Here is some of my writing you can check out:

I bet you are wondering how much all of this fantastic content is going to cost you.

That’s the best part, my newsletter is entirely free.

πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ About me

I have been developing software since I was 8 years old, and I have been a professional software engineer since 2010 after graduating with a Master’s in Physics (I seem to be a glutton for punishment).

Since then, I have worked on projects in banking, military, government and FinTech and worked my way up to becoming an Engineering Manager.

In 2022, I decided I wanted to do more than write code, I wanted to help people by teaching them everything I have learned over the last 27 years of building software.

This newsletter and my YouTube channel are a way for me to make a small difference in the world by sharing content that I wish was available when I was climbing up the software engineering ladder.

I would love it if you would join me and my small community here.
