In Code Your Way Up, Greg asks (and answers) the important questions facing leaders in the software industry that don’t get asked enough (or at all) in identifying what it takes to be a great software leader and what to do when things go sideways.

If you’re new to software leadership or it’s something you aspire to, Code Your Way Up breaks it all down for you, pointing out the pitfalls and the joys, and providing you with a blueprint for excellence and success.  It’s the perfect balance of information and inspiration, imparted with humor, empathy, and clarity and it starts with taking the same approach to leading as you do to coding – jumping in.
