Great Article Nadine! SO many good tips.
A couple things you touched on that has been good for me:
I cannot tell you how valuable scheduling time to learn, build projects, listen to a podcast etc. My learning immediately increased when I realized if I don't do SOMETHING almost everyday related to coding it wouldn't work. To really grasp some of these concepts it takes a lot of repetition and practice.
Anyway those are just my thoughts. Thanks again for the great article. It got my mind running.
I am so happy that this lines were somehow useful for you!
I find your advice really interesting. You said in a previous comment to another post that you were thinking of writing more about your job. Any improvements so far? :)
What is pairing programming? Sounds interesting.
Thank you reading and sharing.
I am a little timid about writing something. Haha. And I am not sure what to write.
Pair programming is basically you have 2 people. One "Driver" and one "Navigator". The navigator has to clearly defined for the driver how they want to write the code. The driver has to interpret the instructions into code. The driver can't jump in and say maybe we should try this or that and the navigator can't jump in a say let me show you how to write that piece of code. Then every so often you switch. That the boiled down version. Im sure their is a better explanation but that is kind of how I understand it.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
