Programming is an amazing career because the pursuit of learning is baked into everything we do. Whether it’s writing better code, improving your management skills, or working on habits that allow you to be more productive, the field is ever-changing.

Welcome to Better Programming. We want to bring you a different kind of publication — one that covers every aspect of what it means to be a programmer — and we can’t wait to get started.

We bring you daily articles that you won’t find anywhere else and actionable content to help you stay at the very height of your engineering game. We also dive deep into the human side of engineering. We’ll explore topics like how to be a better manager, strategies for negotiating a contract, the importance of rest and exercise to your job, how to sell your ideas to others on your team, and so much more.

From how-tos and tutorials about that framework or language you’ve been meaning to learn to articles about the ideal way to time caffeine for maximum flow state, we’ve got you covered. Whether it’s artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, Redux, Flutter, or a Hello World in a new language, our goal is to help you learn quickly and get smarter — for wherever the road, the code, and your career may take you.

I’m Zack Shapiro. I’m the editor at Better Programming and a self-taught engineer. I’ve founded and sold companies. I’ve led engineering at Bump and mobile at Splash. I was the second engineer on Product Hunt and I’ve worked with companies like Raise, Holloway, and Square.

Subscribe today — we’re excited to build Better Programming together.
