Hey there, how is the programming life going?

e͒.salim@salimelliyeEvery language, library & framework exists for a reason. None of them are useless.
Stop making fun of some languages, frameworks and libraries.
#100DaysOfCode18:35 PM - 20 Jul 2020
Just because you love the language you know and work in, that doesn't mean the jobs in other languages will cease to exist.
There are Java jobs!
There are Python jobs!
THERE ARE PHP JOBS!
You get attracted by shiny new projects but understand
1 complete project is better than 20 incomplete projects!
1 complete project is better than watching 20 tutorials!
You need to finish the project
Add it to your portfolio
Show it off!

Your idea doesn't need to be new, it just needs to be better.
Find what services are missing and improve it.

e͒.salim@salimelliyeYou don't need to know everything before you build something.
Start a project with what you know, and finish it with what you wanted to learn.
🔵Learn while you're building stuff.

Catalin Pit@catalinmpitStop looking for 2 things: shortcuts and perfection.
You, your code, your work will never be perfect. Nobody and nothing is perfect.
Secondly, stop looking for shortcuts. They don't exist. Good stuff only comes through hard, smart work and consistency.13:40 PM - 17 Jul 2020

Catalin Pit@catalinmpitIf you want a balanced life, don't guide yourself by this harmful "hustle" where people should:
Work 34 hours per day day
Never take a break
Wake up at 2.30am and sleep 3 hours per night
There is more to life than work. Enjoy it to the fullest!06:08 AM - 16 Jul 2020

e͒.salim@salimelliyeMany tutorials are showing you how to use some technology.
But not much of them are showing you how to use many technologies together, in one project.
That's why you should start building things.
Building is how you get better...

Performance Tip 💡
Make SOME of your images lazy:

It won't hurt your website, but you will get a performance improvement in chrome, firefox and edge.04:19 AM - 15 Jul 2020
e͒.salim@salimelliyeBad habits you should quit as a developer...
🔹Not documenting your work
🔹Copy-pasting code blindly
🔹Working non stop all-day
🔹Refusing to ask for help
🔹Giving up too soon
🔹Not taking breaks

Emma Bostian 🐞My biggest regret in my career is that I spent more time comparing myself to others and worrying about how quickly my coworkers were progressing and not enough time focused on my own progress.
Everyone learns in different ways and at different speeds. Be patient! ✍️13:00 PM - 13 Jul 2020
e͒.salim@salimelliyeThe less code you have, the less mental load as well.
👉 Remove needless complexity
👉 Remove unused code
👉 Remove duplication
Quality > Quantity
#100DaysOfCode12:37 PM - 11 Jul 2020
e͒.salim@salimelliyeA developer should always strive for writing clean code.
A clean code is easily readable, understandable, maintainable and extendable.

Tola@adetolaovWhen I started working, in a bid to do perfect work, I would blow deadlines. A mentor told me, “if you won’t meet deadlines, communicate. Sometimes your work becomes irrelevant if it is late. Better to send a good work in time than a perfect work out of time”. Still working on it10:13 AM - 09 Jul 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitNetwork, network, network. 90% of the opportunities I got, are the results of meeting the right people, NOT because I'm the smartest.
Yes, I know it's hard for introverts. I'm an introvert as well, but we have social media platforms that make it easier.

Break it down into smaller chunks, then attack them one at a time.

Small means a higher chance of reusability and more easy to test.
Then combine small things into larger things.17:54 PM - 06 Jul 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitLearning to code is not easy. Actually, it is difficult. When I learnt to code, I wanted to give up every other week.
But keep going. You got this and you can make it. Do not dare to give up.

"I wish I had a laptop so I could start LEARNING to code."
"I wish I had XYZ so I could start."
Start now from wherever you are and with whatever you got.
You don't have a laptop? Start on your phone.
You don't have a course? Start on FCC!
Just make the first step
You got this!23:57 PM - 05 Jul 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitThe reason I encourage beginners to write articles is that they understand the struggles of beginners better. They can relate and they use a simpler terminology.
Just make sure you provide accurate information and don't copy.
Start writing those articles and share knowledge!10:15 AM - 06 Jul 2020

Adrian Twarog 🦘@adrian_twarogAs developers, we have some of the hardest interview processes.
We have to show our background, projects and more, we must do technical interviews, tests, follow up interviews, show working examples, prove we can do what we say.
If that's overwhelming, you're not alone.03:34 AM - 05 Jul 2020
Every senior developer is a junior in a different subject.
So stop worrying about whether you are a senior, a junior or aspiring.
WE ARE ALL DEVELOPERS.
Working together, supporting each other and problem solving!02:56 AM - 05 Jul 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitThings that helped me as a junior developer:
^ Do only 1 thing at a time
^ Understand the problem, solve the problem and only after that start coding
^ Ask questions. A lot.
^ Make mistakes. Admit mistakes. Learn from your mistakes.
^ Learn to listen09:14 AM - 04 Jul 2020

Mads BrodtI always talk about the importance of asking questions as a junior developer.
Equally important, regardless of your experience, is to help others by answering these questions
Even if you're not an expert, chances are you can still help with something

If you are trying to go from A to B,
if you run, you will get there faster
If you walk, you will get there slower
BUT YOU WILL STILL GET THERE!
Don't worry about HOW LONG it takes to get to where you want to go.
Only thing that matters is that you still got there!16:06 PM - 28 Jun 2020

Deni Moka⚡@dmokafaFailing at your first interview is OK.
Introducing a bug in your software is OK.
Spending more time on grasping high and low level concepts is OK.
It is OK to fail. The most important is to learn from our failures and every time to be a better version of ourselves!10:51 AM - 28 Jun 2020
Catalin Pit@catalinmpitIt's ok to re-adjust goals. Goals change.
I planned to learn React this year but dropped it. Instead, I plan on going full-blown on AWS from now on.
Why? I use AWS professionally and personally. I can't say the same about React.
Be strict with your time. You can't get it back.11:45 AM - 27 Jun 2020
