Why am I writing this book?

Nick Haskins @nphaskins

This is raw and un-edited, but I wanted to share the driving force behind writing this book.

"As experienced software engineers, I think we’re scaring away other potential engineers because we have over complicated web development. We're putting too much emphasis on what tools to use, or what technology stack to build, and not enough focus on actually teaching others how to build great products.

This is at least, my attempt to mitigate that, on whatever level that may be."
