Hey There! Scott here with Motivated Code Pro.
It's no secret that software development is creative and fulfilling.
It's also stressful!
It's fun, it's fast, but it's frustrating. It's demanding, it's difficult, and It's rewarding.
It's team work and working alone. It's late nights, early mornings, and everything in between.
It's design work, design patterns, support tasks, and testing steps, and of course it's about coding. It's always about the code.
But it's also about soft skills, goal setting, negotiation, stress management, and dealing with difficult people.
That's life in software development.
If it were easy, everyone would do it. But it's hard, and if this is the work you have chosen, then you have come to the right place.
If it happens in software development, there's a good chance I've lived it. If I haven't lived it, I've likely seen it or know someone who has.
Think of Motivated Code Pro like this: You and I are in a coffee shop, maybe at a technical conference, we're in relaxed conversation, visiting, sharing our thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Maybe we have questions or suggestions for one another.
We're new friends bound by the common thread of life in software development.
Maybe I have feedback, alternatives and strategies for you, gained from a lifetime in software and entrepreneurship.
Maybe you have ideas and suggestions for me from your time in the trenches. Or maybe you're just beginning your software journey.
Either way, I want to help you take the next step in your software career. Whether you're just getting started, moving up through the ranks, or starting your own consultancy. I have been there. I am there.
And I want you to be there too.
Motivated Code Pro is about you, your life in software, and keeping your career on an upward trajectory. It's about helping you take the necessary steps to keep you on course and to avoid the pitfalls that would derail your progress.
