No matter how you started coding, you have had formative moments when learning. Reflect on one of your “lightbulb” moments when things started to “click." ~ Tea Break Challenge, Day #29
Almost six years ago... The beginning of my career, during college, I was hired as a part-time Mobile Software Developer consultant. I was hired with little to no knowledge on how to do the job — but, I was so determined... I went the entire first year without really understanding how to read API documentation; however, I was able to build my first production mobile application for a client within this first year! Although the app was a success, I really was still unsure about myself and how I was able to build it. The company I was working for then hired a new developer who was also aspiring to be a software developer, and it was me assigned to teach him "how to build mobile applications." — Whelp, so I did! I taught him how to read API documentation, And you know what...? That's when it clicked! I won't forget that "lightbulb!" moment, because I looked at him like... **** I know what I am talking about after all!
Teach and you will learn.
What's a lightbulb moment of yours?
