Take the pragmatic engineer newsletter. $15 a month or $150 a year. What I've learned in just a single post increases my value as an employee at any company by more than $15 in a single month. That's one Uber Eats meal being delivered, and many of my friends will gladly do that.
@GergelyOrosz's newsletter is probably one of the best investments that anyone who works in Engineering can make.
Regardless of seniority, stack or the company you work at.
For me, it's a way to:
- Keep up with tech news
- See how other teams work
- Peek into eng best practises
⚡️As a sourcer or recruiter, you live and die by your market knowledge. There’s a ton of amazing resources out there but I only pay for one substack; The Pragmatic Engineer by Gergely Orosz. The depth of insight is second to none and the ROI is insane. Highly recommend to any tech recruiter looking to be better.
If you are not following Gergely Orosz and his work on The Pragmatic Engineer you are truly missing out. I've learned more from reading this newsletter than from any class/course I've every taken.
Gergely Orosz has built an absolutely amazing resource for the software engineering industry, The Pragmatic Engineer. I believe that if you are a senior+ level engineer, this is one of the most invaluable resources you can have, and is worth every penny.
Really enjoying @GergelyOrosz’s Pragmatic Engineer newsletter.
There’s of tech content on strategy, fundraising, and CEOs’ thoughts on Chesa Boudin but very little about operating in the techno-bureaucracies that make the world go round.
It’s an important gap to fill!
The Pragmatic Engineer is one of the few engineering management publications that I reference routinely. If you’re an engineering leader and not yet subscribed, try it out for a month. There’s a list of all the past year’s articles in the post below.
After years of following his tweets and nodding along , finally became a paid @GergelyOrosz newsletter subscriber and it’s very good. Here’s a snippet on coming into a new team’s engineering culture. (btw he did not pay me to write this tweet and don’t sleep on it)
Got to give a shoutout to @GergelyOrosz and the awesome writing he puts out for engineers and technical leaders. Pragmatic Engineer newsletter is gold. I have been around tech for 30+ years. The knowledge you will pick up WILL increase your market value.
