In "Software Engineering - The Soft Parts" Addy Osmani shares lessons from his first 10 years at Google on the "soft skills" that can help engineers become effective and scale their effectiveness. This guidance should help junior, mid-career and even senior developers move forward, deal with changing technology, and navigate building non-trivial systems. Becoming a good engineer is about collecting experience. Each project, even small ones, is a chance to add new techniques and tools to your toolbox. Where this delivers even more value is when you can solve problems by pairing techniques learned on one project with tools learned working on another. This short book tries to capture what the "soft skills" are and how they can all add up.
