7 Short Tips to Growth as a Developer
Do Not Copy and Paste (CTRL C + V)
Type the code your self, it makes a huge difference! When you are getting started you need to be comfortable with code. The way you can do it is by -you guessed- typing more code! : ) Do not copy and paste
Start Sending Your Resume Before You Are Ready
Do not say am not ready, let the market decide if you are or not. By sending resume and going to interviews, you would realize how much skills and market need, so you can practice more on what's necessary
Soft Skills Are As Important As Technical Skills
It doesn't matter how good you are at coding if you can't present yourself well. Learn how to write a better resume, market your self and communicate with others.
Work on Your App or Website
You need experience to get a job but you need a job to have experience. So what should you do? Create your own app or website for a hypothetical customer and show off your skill.
High Salary vs High Learning Opportunity
Do not choose your first job based on how much you would be paid. Choose a position where you can learn the most, the money would come later. Sometimes a low paying internship is worth more than a position with a good a salary.
Be Patient Mastery Takes Time
It takes about 10, 000 hours to maser a skill (Malcom Gladwell, the 10,000 hours' rule). So just relax and keep coding, you'll get there! : )
Learn to Ask Better Questions
"If you want to the right answer ask the right question" If you can't find your answer on the internet, check if you are really asking the right questions and if it so...asked an experience person.
