re: The one thing almost nobody ever focuses on is: people skills. Learn how to work in teams, learn how to communicate. Learn what makes you tick and...

100% agree but do you think you can learn this? I found it's more natural and some people have and other are not so great. Though, I did benefitted a lot from John's Soft Skill book, I still thing it is one the hardest thing to learn or improve.


I think it is something that you can work on and learn. Development draws a lot of introverted people, lots of techy, geeky people. Sometimes it's hard for us to spend energy on others but we need to work on those skills. One thing hiring managers may tell you, is that all those technical skills can be learnt but someone who doesn't work well with others... that's not so easy to remedy. So don't stop working on those soft skills.

Thanks @jadebeer , agree, persistence is key here. Thanks


How to win friends and influence people is very good too

yup, that's another nice books. thanks for suggestion.


Absolutely you can learn soft skills and communication. I would agree that it's one of the most difficult things to learn and improve on, but it's also one of the most rewarding.
