How to break out of SDE-I role

A few days ago, I posted a new blog on my personal blog.

Breaking out of Software Developer-I role as a web developer. Please head over to the post if you want to read the detailed description.

Here are some of the key points that I want to share here as well. Experienced Devs, please share your checklist as well will add it there.

  • Learn Database designing
  • Learn some DevOps
  • Learn how to debug
  • Learn to write tests
  • Learn about scaling issues
  • Learn a little bit about security
  • Learn about caching
  • Learn to review code properly
  • Maintain your personal websites
  • Help out new joinings and business guys
  • Ask for the promotion, when you feel like you are ready to step up.

True @bpedroza , Asking for a promotion is also very important. Sometimes you have to ask for the things that you want.

It's not sometimes, it's always. Nobody will give you anything unless you let them know you want it. Nothing personal, just business.
