Every month we share content that we are reading. This month, we dive into the books that a group of our developers have been reading. 

Harry S. Truman said it best, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” 

Independent learning is something that we do not take lightly here at In Time Tec. Reading is a simple way for our employees to expand their knowledge, build their expertise, and contribute to their growth while becoming leaders. 

Here is a closer look at the specific authors and content that the team has been reading:
