re: Developer Differences: Makers vs Menders VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm definitely a Mender, 100%. I often find it frustrating and difficult to convey the value of my work to others, particularly in interview situations, as so many of them seem to be focussed on your ability to come up with new ideas and build personal projects from scratch. It can be difficult to demonstrate (without breaking corporate confidentiality) how you have refactored and improved upon existing products.

 

Me too! I would much rather refactor and tweak something until it's working really well than having a blank page and a deadline.

I don't know how to add this kind of work to a portfolio either so am using my posts here to convey my experience.

 

If you haven't listened to this Freakonomics podcast yet, I have a hunch that you'll love it. :) freakonomics.com/podcast/in-praise...
