April’s Fool

Michael Doyle and I are launching a new book in May 2020. The book is I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge: The book that helps increase your impact and satisfaction at work.

Some people told us that it was not the perfect timing as people surely have other things on their minds. Others told us it was the right timing because people will want something to read. As a result, I think I don’t really know if it is good or bad. I only hope that the book will find its audience and have the impact we wished for when we wrote it.

For April’s fool, we thought about what kind of joke we could make. We opted for a merch store with announces on Twitter using quotes from movies. We thought everybody would guess the joke and laugh with us.

I don’t think it worked. The products were named, the first, the of, and the month. Maybe people did not even get to the page and saw that?

Let’s not all of them, because someone ask it was for real, and if it was possible to order something 🙂 Yes, it is for real and we updated the page with real product names!

Here are two links for if you want to learn more about the book and why we decided to write it.
