Developer Branding

Up to this point, we have discussed choosing our desired workplace and learned what the hiring process looks like. Now, I want to drill down a little about something not many developers pay attention to: developer branding.

Developer branding refers to the way software developers present themselves and their work to the public. It can include elements such as a personal website, social media presence, and contributions to open source projects.

In this chapter, we’re going to cover the following main topics:

  • Understanding the importance of developing a brand
  • Contributing to the community
  • Writing content
  • Combining all and more
  • Understanding that every in-person interaction is important

By the end of the chapter, we will have the tools to start building our personal developer brand. First, let’s understand why it matters to our primary goal: passing the iOS interview.
