I read Sandi Metz' popular book Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby several years ago. While I took some things away, I was a bit too green to really draw a lot of value. I recently picked it back up and I'm glad I did. Old ideas are now so much more actionable. I found myself hanging on word for word this time instead of picking at an idea here and there.
Revisiting places you've been before is a great pattern for a software development career. The second time around is golden.
I had the same feeling when I revisited some old code in order to change a website I had not seen in years. It was all my code, but it was like it had been written by a different person.
I hope you too find an old place to visit this new year.
Happy coding ❤️
