A John Sonmez book might not be the best source of advice. Just saying.

Fair point. I've found it quite useful so far to be honest. Is definitely getting me thinking!

I say this as someone who used to be a big fan of John. I watched several of his Pluralsight courses and was a regular subscriber of the Simple Programmer YouTube channel. I even sent him a few questions, some of which he even answered in a video.

However he started to slide into "brogrammer" territory and started posting some questionable videos. Then he changed "Simple Programmer" to "Bulldog Mindset" and I was like "yup, I'm out". Then the debacle involving him on Twitter a few months back only confirmed that I made the right choice.

Good post by the way. Career development is definitely important to think about, especially for those of us who are starting to get a little older :)
