What is your biggest weakness?

We all have our weak spots, the sooner we realize what they are the sooner we will be able to resolve them and move on. Some things are simpler and some things take time, it's ok, just do the best you can do to find a solution. After all, no one is perfect.

Let's see what other developers have to say.
What are their weaknesses?!

What is your biggest weakness?

Cookies. lol
Realistically, I would say recently fear of failure. I used to be an expert in the field of biochemistry and pretty good at teaching but now I need to build up my confidence in many, many areas of software.

It takes time and practice to build up your confidence.
By knowing what needs to be improved it's easier to take the next step.

And don't be hard with yourself :)

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
