Welcome to Refactoring! ✨

Welcome to the free version of Refactoring! I am thrilled and grateful that you joined!

The goal of Refactoring is to help you write great software and build an awesome engineering team.

Going forward, you can expect two types of emails: Monday 3-2-1s, and Thursday Essays:

💡 Monday 3-2-1s

Every Monday I will send you a short email with 3 actionable ideas about engineering management, technical strategy, and good hiring.

These emails are ✨ free ✨ for all subscribers, and will always stay so. Here is an example from the past:

✍️ Thursday Essays

Every Thursday I will send an original, in-depth article about some engineering topic, backed by my experience, tons of research, and ideas from other great tech leaders.

These are the articles that made Refactoring famous, and are mostly reserved to 🔒 paid subscribers 🔒
