The Work: Collected Offerings

Framing much of the discourse around concepts such as “asymmetry,” “reverberation,” “tender center,” and “digital zero,” I found that, while the book is quite practical as expected, it’s also surprisingly poetic. – Monty McKeever on Digital Warriorship for Tricycle Magazine

Terminal

Terminal is a technology book dedicated to making the hidden visible. As I became a programmer, I realized much of the mystique around being a programmer happens on the command line. I wrote Terminal to demystify things. For a programmer, the terminal is how you access the guts of your machine; this is an access point to those guts. Terminal is a collection of interviews to guide you onto the command line and into the world of programming.

Terminal offers the why of computing as you read the how of Miserable Git. Before you even approach the terminal, you have to have some idea why the terminal exists and why it matters. If you don’t already have it, you’ll get that in Terminal.

Digital Warriorship

To be present for others, first see and hear yourself.

Align your real self with your digital self. My path from scrolling for empathy to taking digital sabbaticals and what I learned. Here’s an introduction to start developing your presence.

I would not have become a programmer if I had not done the things that I rolled into The Work. Now that I am a programmer and writer, I can build the houses that hold the work I do. Do you know how liberating it is to be self-reliant enough to build your own digital homestead?

Liberating. The Work is the path I took.

The work includes every relevant conversation, experiment and resource - everything I used to get to where I am now, doing what I love every day.

It’s every relevant conversation, experiment and resource - everything I used to get to where I am now, doing what I love every day.

Get it before 14:00 Mexico City Time (CST) on 31 July 2014.
