I didn’t learn coding all by myself. But, of course, I listened, watched, and worked with other programmers from time to time and mostly with programmers that were way better than me.
Of course, it would be a waste of time if I didn’t learn a thing or two from them, so I’ll be happy to share it with everyone reading this article.
- Don’t give up on a problem.
- Write “your” code as if it were going to be displayed in a presentation, and your “quality as a programmer” is being evaluated by all those who are looking at and judging everything you have written.
- Write your comments as if you had Alzheimer’s and needed explanations daily!
- Your code doesn’t necessarily need to use all the more optimized and advanced techniques you read in that last book!
- Your code needs to be easy to maintain!
- New languages are not necessarily new technologies.
- Knowing how to solve a problem in a particular language is one thing.
- If you’re spending a lot of time thinking about a specific solution that isn’t domain-specific, don’t be shy about looking it up on Google (or Stack Overflow).
- Shortcuts are underrated.
- Readability matters and what is readable.
