What a simple and powerful question! For myself, these are:

📕 Phoenix Project – taught me why short feedback loops are essential and why every successful organisation should foster a culture that endorses experimentation, learning from failures, repetition and practice as paths to mastery.

📕 Unicorn Project – taught me what developer experience means, why psychological safety is crucial, and how as a developer, I can improve the quality of work from inside the organisation.

📕 Continuous Delivery – taught me the most valuable lesson: "if it hurts, do it more often". Having embraced this idea, I've never left a project without improving the delivery process even slightly.
