Creating a Brown Bag Lunch Program

Dear Reader,

brown_bag_coverLast month – Feburary 2016 – I launched my new book “Creating a Brown Bag Lunch Program”. In a little over a month, it has gained close to 400 readers.

The What and Why

The premise of the book is simple, I walk managers of developers teams through all the steps necessary to create an environment of continuous learning for their teams.

Creating a Brown Bag Lunch program is not difficult, but managers are busy. This book lays out everything you need to know in a simple step-by-step process. From how to select topics to the details like room and food, I lay it all out for you in this book.

For $10, and about 30 minutes of your time, you can learn everything you need to know to start a program that is going to help build your team, grow your team, and bring your team together.

I have released my latest book, “Culture of Respect”

Book Cover: Culture of RespectDear Reader,

I have released my latest book, Culture of Respect. This book is for Team Leads, Managers, Directors of IT, and anyone charged with building and managing a team of developers. It is specifically not for developers. If you are a developer and not looking to move into management any time soon, please don’t buy this book.

The largest part of the book focuses on how to find developers to hire. It also covers how to hire developers. (hint, it doesn’t really require a coding test) Finally it talks about building a team.

This book is built from 3 sources.

  • My personal experience managing developers
  • Discussions I’ve had over the years with other managers
  • Discussions I’ve had with developers about their managers

In my career I’ve been a developer, a managers, and a director. This book was written primarily for my younger self. It is the advice I wish I had had when I was starting down the management road.

If you are a manager, I urge you to take a look at it.  If you are a developer, it is not an insulting book, it is safe to give as a gift to your favorite manager.

Until next time,
I <3 |<
