We finished week 2 of the 9-week boot camp. This week was AngularJS week. We covered building the front-end of a Single Page App with the AngularJS framework.

One of the struggles a developer faces when moving up the ladder, is how to keep their technical skills? If they are used to being a high-performing, individual contributor, and a technical go-to resource, this is especially challenging. Why? Because the job is different, now. It’s no longer about how awesome your developer skills are. Now it’s about bringing out the best from the people you manage, and hopefully *lead.* Your job is now about creating a high-performing team. It’s about growing more leaders. It’s about being the oil and the glue. The oil so that
the team can work effectively, as friction-free as possible, and the glue, so that all the work connects together. There’s a good book called What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There, by Marshall Goldsmith. The book title sort of says it all, but the big idea is that if you take on a new management role, but continue to perform like an individual contributor, or at a lower level, don’t expect to be successful. The irony is that most people will quickly default to doing what they do best, which is what got them to where they...(Read whole news on source site)

An important aspect of personal effectiveness and career development is learning business skills for a technology-centric world.
I know a lot of developers figuring out how to share their expertise in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. Some are creating software services, some are selling online courses, some are selling books, and some are building digital products. It’s how they are sharing and scaling their expertise with the world, while doing what they love.
In each case, the underlying pattern is the same:
It’s how you scale. It’s how you amplify your impact. It’s a simple way to combine passion + purpose + profit.
With our mobile-first, cloud-first world, and so much technology at your fingertips to help with automation
, it’s time to learn better business skills and how to stay relevant in in an ever-changing market.
But the challenge is, how do you actually start?
On the consumer side ...
In a mobile-first, cloud-first world, users want the ability to consume information anywhere, anytime, from any device.
On the produce side ...
Producers want the ability to easily create digital products that they can...(Read whole news on source site)
