We meet weekly to review a book, one chapter at a time. At these discussions we dive into the subjects of a book and talk about possible applications to real-world scenarios.
In my most recent job search, my technical expertise got my foot in the door for interviews. Mentioning that I was active in Peopleware helped secure me two job offers and almost got me a third. Employers who care about their employees want to hire people who care about making a better workplace for everyone.
Peopleware shows me how much an autonomous group of people can accomplish. There’s coaching, Q&A, study groups, job postings, and good humor throughout. It’s the best resource I have for professional development, and exposes me to many more.
Peopleware is the professional community I’ve always wanted and finally found. Their passion for growth is infectious, and the psychological safety is the stuff of legends. It’s my go-to for advice, coaching, interesting conversations, and good old fashioned screwing around.
