In this industry (industries) and this global culture, it is just impossible to find someone with integrity, intelligence, discipline, and rigor. I consistently find Orosz to be one of the few, and he has insights and visibility into the tech workplace, tech corporations, and tech operations that I am not aware of anyone else matching (and publishing).
I wish more people were as honest and as ready to confront observed reality. As able to think strategically and systematically while still having the finesse for the details / depth. And just a spot on analysis of the market forces and what companies are up to (whether they want folks to know or not).
I highly recommend following and subscribing.
Take the pragmatic engineer newsletter. $15 a month or $150 a year. What I've learned in just a single post increases my value as an employee at any company by more than $15 in a single month. That's one Uber Eats meal being delivered, and many of my friends will gladly do that.
Got to give a shoutout to @GergelyOrosz and the awesome writing he puts out for engineers and technical leaders. Pragmatic Engineer newsletter is gold. I have been around tech for 30+ years. The knowledge you will pick up WILL increase your market value.
@GergelyOrosz's newsletter is probably one of the best investments that anyone who works in Engineering can make.
Regardless of seniority, stack or the company you work at.
For me, it's a way to:
- Keep up with tech news
- See how other teams work
- Peek into eng best practises
If you are not following Gergely Orosz and his work on The Pragmatic Engineer you are truly missing out. I've learned more from reading this newsletter than from any class/course I've every taken.
If you're a software engineer, you work with engineers, or you're looking to get into tech, @GergelyOrosz is a must-follow.
He knows what it's like in the trenches.
My neck is sore from nodding in agreement to all of his stuff!
I got a paid subscription of The Pragmatic Engineer newsletter, by @GergelyOrosz, a few days ago.
I have now 10 tabs open with editions I want to read, and that's because I didn't even go to the archive yet.
Highly recommended to everyone in tech.
Gergely Orosz has built an absolutely amazing resource for the software engineering industry, The Pragmatic Engineer. I believe that if you are a senior+ level engineer, this is one of the most invaluable resources you can have, and is worth every penny.
I've gotten so much from @GergelyOrosz's free newsletter so I bought a paid subscription to The Pragmatic Engineer. Bonus: access to all the previous issues. newsletter.pragmaticengineer.com/?utm_medium=we…
Do you pay for any newsletters or have ones you particularly love? Share please.
Really enjoying @GergelyOrosz’s Pragmatic Engineer newsletter.
There’s of tech content on strategy, fundraising, and CEOs’ thoughts on Chesa Boudin but very little about operating in the techno-bureaucracies that make the world go round.
It’s an important gap to fill!
After months of reading super high quality tweets from @GergelyOrosz, I finally subscribed to his (paid) Pragmatic Engineer newsletter. I can't wait to get the first one! Thanks for all your sharing, really! :)
The Pragmatic Engineer is one of the few engineering management publications that I reference routinely. If you’re an engineering leader and not yet subscribed, try it out for a month. There’s a list of all the past year’s articles in the post below.
⚡️As a sourcer or recruiter, you live and die by your market knowledge. There’s a ton of amazing resources out there but I only pay for one substack; The Pragmatic Engineer by Gergely Orosz. The depth of insight is second to none and the ROI is insane. Highly recommend to any tech recruiter looking to be better.
I'm trying to stay on top of the news happening in the IT industry, and I've been subscribed to Hackernews, Hustle, and a couple of platform-specific newsletters (like Android weekly) for almost ten years.
But nothing compares with the Pragmatic engineer newsletter, authored by Gergely Orosz.
The level of in-depth information and knowledge sharing is out of this world. It's one of the best newsletters focusing on the IT market, and the premium subscription is worth every cent.
Keep up the excellent work, and looking forward to new issues.
