So What Is This?

Don't Break Prod is a collection of bite-sized pieces of career advice for software engineers.

Some advice might seem obvious. Some advice might not work for everyone. Some advice might be more relevant at certain stages of your career. Hopefully some of it is valuable to some people.

So Why Should I Listen To Your Advice?

I have had a long career in software in a number of large and small, famous and unknown companies as both an engineer and a manager. I've done some things really well and I've screwed up quite a bit. Both have been pretty insightful.

But I'm also just another random person on the internet, so 🤷. If some of this resonates with you or proves to be useful, great!
