re: What software development skills only come with experience? VIEW POST


Two points that come to my mind:

1) Shell one-liners that will immediately do exactly what you want.
From my own experience - tasks that would take me 10 minutes of using mice and file explorer now take only seconds once I became fluent in using basic shell commands and pipe them together. Before becoming professional I naturally didn't have to repeat same and same operation every day just to check something.

2) Use of Automation tools - especially in in webdev. When I was learning stuff myself - pressing F5 to refresh page was basically done hundreds of times. Now I cannot imagine life without browserSync, gulp/bower or puryfiCSS

code of conduct - report abuse
