Career Development for Software Developers – Apprenticeship Patterns by Adewale Oshineye
Adewale Oshineye – Ade to his friends – is a Google engineer, photographer, and O’Reilly author. In October 2009, Ade and co-author Dave Hoover published Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the Aspiring Software Craftsman. Apprenticeship Patterns was the culmination of over thirty conversations they had with their counterparts in the Software Apprenticeship movement. One of the remarkable things about the book is that, by the time it was complete, Dave and Ade – who live on separate continents – had met just 4 times.
Ade kindly spoke to me at Google’s offices in Victoria, London about how the book came about and who it’s for.
