The Battle Hardened Developer (Simple Programmer)
Friday, 02 September 2022

This book sets out to help developers advance their careers by leaning how to turn the table and trick their brains into achieving a focused state to accomplish more than they thought was possible. Fiodar Sazanavets uses lessons learned from mixed martial arts and endurance sports. 


Sazanavets argues that social media is designed to make you fail, because modern society is addicted to dopamine, and that the likes, loves, comments, and shares of social media are a drug that quietly ruins our focus. Dopamine leads to procrastination because we all want that next fix.
