Publisher's Summary

If you want to land a job in tech, you need to know how to code. That much is obvious. A skill that is equally as important - but often overlooked - is knowing how to market yourself to potential employers, especially if you're new to the industry. Do you know how to land interviews and deliver a compelling case for why you should be hired?   

Bobby Davis Jr. has helped place hundreds of aspiring coders into high-paying tech jobs. In Breaking the Code, he shares the proven strategies he uses with his students and offers up insider tips that will make you stand out from the competition.   

You'll learn how to avoid the biggest stumbling block when it comes to landing a job and what you should build before an interview if you don't have a project to show. Bobby also teaches you the secret to accessing jobs not found on corporate job boards and exponentially increasing your chances of getting the job you want. The path to $100,000 a year - and infinite possibilities beyond that - begins with Breaking the Code.

Essential Advice for the Aspiring Programmer

I'm a computer science student in my senior year, who has been working for 3 years as a software developer full-time. After listening to this book, I can see how I had made my journey harder than it needed to be.

It is very easy for the aspirant to get side-tracked into "trending" languages, libraries and stacks and to buy into myths about programmers and the software development industry.

This book offers an actionable plan for the aspiring programmer to focus on the right skills, begin working on their craft, and land a position to start their career.

While experienced programmers will already know most of what this book talks about, they would still appreciate the insights about the role recruiters play in helping developers land their next position. I had no idea of the importance of the relationship between a developer and a recruiter.

The content is not very long at all but what is there is full of substance. I heartily recommend this book.
Thank you Bobby Davis Jr, for putting together this sound advice.

Great and Motivational

Must read for anyone wanting a career in the vast field of Computing. Great and motivational. Inspirational in the vain of Napoleon Hill, but with less mystery. Call to action with the power Jim Rohn, but with more specific direction.

Just the push i needed after COVID. Thanks for producing this book Bobby.

Shame I can't share-it/loan-it-out.

pamphlet style audio book for their bootcam

just a waste of money. whole book could be summarised in a sentence: learn our stack as (we promise) it will get you hired and then join our bootcamp because we have a high success rate n shit. Could of been actually helpful with a few references to the bootcamp but here, we are talking about every fucking chapter "like coder foundry where all of your wildest dreams come true". Should be free if you want to advertise. returning!!!!
