Fill The Gaps in Your Career with The Imposter s Handbook I wrote this book to fill the gaps in my programming career I m a self taught developer, and for most of my career, I ve learned what was required to get the job done When conversations veered toward core concepts, I disengaged I decided to change all of this in and wrote a book about what I learned.

    One thought on “The Imposter's Handbook”

    1. Like Rob Conery, I don't have a degree in Computer Science (CS), and despite decades of professional experience with software development, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all that which I don't know; in fact, to a degree that I asked my almer mater whether they would accept me as a student on the CS degree. (Unfortunately, since I already have (another) degree, the answer was no.)While I'm getting fed up with all the talk about impostor syndrome, I can definitely identify with the Dunning-Kruger [...]

    2. Great book, it has a bit of everything for everybody, which is also its only drawback.Because the chapters are nicely isolated, it's really easy to skip/skim through those about topics you already know. On the other hand, the chapters that interested me could've gone deeper on their subjects. It's easy to understand why, given the concept of the book.Either way, this is a great book for self-taught programmers to tell you about parts of software development you didn't know you were interested in [...]

    3. Not worth the read for someone fresh out of CS but definitely a must read for developers without CS degree!

    4. I deeply respect the courage Rob showed by writing a book on topics he is still learning. This book shows us that even a Rob Conery doesn’t get everything right the first time and that we mere mortal developers are not alone with our struggles to understand complex topics. Unfortunately, the book isn’t advertised as this ongoing learning experience. Instead, it is marketed as a book to learn the fundamental concepts and skills that come with a degree in Computer Science. That is simply not w [...]

    5. I had high expectations of this book based on Conery's discussion about it on the DotNetRocks podcast. Unfortunately, even with the updated version of the book that I read, it fell short of expectations. The first third gives a good overview of fundamental computer science and programming concepts, but never enough to complete your knowledge (although Conery admits this right at the beginning). The rest of the book is a hodgepodge of topics based on what the author is interested in (e.g Elixir, [...]

    6. Until 70% of the book, I will totally recommend this book to a junior developer that want to know more about development, system administration and database.What drives me to this book was the "Comp Sci, Baby" chapter It is a good chapter, well writen, but not a life change *for me*. Before the 70% the book have some chapter about OO Patterns and 0ther patterns and this is the section that I really like, its easy to use for questions like: "How a composite/bridge pattern works?"I really enjoy th [...]

    7. + Very easy to read - was looking forward to continue reading as if this was some fictional book;+ Inspirational - you get to see how excited a person can be about learning new things and technologies and how it is even possible to incorporate those into time with your family;+ Has some nice practical advice - will definitely get back to the chapter about learning new language when I will finally start doing it;- Not detail enough to actually learn something directly from it. On the other hand I [...]

    8. This book was fantastic. 10/10. It helped me grasp a lot of concepts that I had missed as a self-taught programmer. Certainly, there is a lot more for me to learn, but this book helped me fill a lot of gaps. I liked the sections on BigO, graph theory, lambda calculus, algorithms, etc. The more I study these algorithms the quicker I can recognize them in the code that I'm writing at work everyday. I would recommend this to anyone that doesn't have a formal background in computer science. Some cha [...]

    9. It's a nice book with a good round-up of computer science main theories. However, I sense some amateurism because it has a fair deal of spelling mistakes and placeholders in the text. There are also some passages that are repeated I guess you should wait for new versions before spending 30$ on it.

    10. It has a rather good start, but author doesn't go deep into any topics, just giving some basics and / or random details per topic. Second part of the book is very subjective in selection of topics to discuss.

    11. Got several pages of notes and a rather long list of other things I want to learn about, which is exactly what I want from an instructional book.

    12. If you are a self taught developer this book is a must. This puts so many conversations and tutorials I have gone through into context.

    13. A must-read for any self-taught developer wanting to be sure there are no gaps in their knowledge. Ron Conery walks you through a variety of topics traditionally taught in Computer Science programs that may not be known to self-taught developers. In each topic, he provides the reader with a fundamental knowledge and gives enough more than information to not be completely out-of-the-loop when the topic is brought up in conversation. More importantly, however, he gives the reader valuable knowledg [...]

    14. A good reading. It introduces computer science concepts using a didactic approach, I expected more depth about some topics (data structures and algorithms, for example), but I am satisfied by the excelent writing style and the quantity and quality of references linked in the book (papers, talks, blog posts, etc).

    15. A worthy effort that explains some of the fundamentals covered in CS degrees to the audience of the people working in the IT sector without a CS background. Whether you are a systems adminstrator hoping to become a junior-developer or a grizzled IT veteran that would benefit in the theory behind the practice this book provides a good introduction.
