5 Impressive Habits That Will Make A Big Difference In Software Development Sector!
What happens when you get identically skilled people as candidates, and you cannot decide who to prefer based on platforms, languages, skills, frameworks, techniques, and industries of experience? Simply put, the two candidates are practically twinning — on paper! How about we tell you that one of these candidates is still better than the other and would pursue a better and more successful career based on one’s personal habits? You can, too, evaluate this by your own following the below mentioned vital aspects:
1: The Developer Writes An Easy And Clean Code That Is Reusable, Easier To Test, And Read.
Starting the code with “assigning one purpose to each of the corresponding function” is exceptionally essential, as quoted by Andrew Magee (Software development manager, Enigma Digitals, UK). He further explains that when a developer starts to write code, following a line-by-line pattern and does not care for assigning a specific function to every code. What happens is that the code gets bigger and bigger while keep getting harder and harder to read and test. Thus, the code needs to be extremely focused on the functions required.
2: The Developer Uses His Ears More Than His Tongue. At Least He Should Listen Before He Speaks.
Christopher Mendy (Developer Head, Evus Technologies, USA) indicates that one of the core perks to success is that the developer must have the ability and capacity to listen before he speaks. He suggests this as the quickest way to learn. Additionally, he focuses that the ability to admit that “I need to learn” helps a developer grow and become the smartest person in the room
3: Discipline Is More Crucial In Development Than Any Other Area
“A developer who lacks discipline is like a sailor who lacks a map,” says Gady Pitaru (CTO, Badger Maps, USA). He further describes an ideal developer as someone who never compromises on speed, embraces the flexibility in the processes, and, finally, someone who knows the value of time.
4: Ability To Seek Help, Even From The Strangers Available On The Internet
Yes, Google counts! If someone is taking help and knows how to take help from Google, he is already one step ahead inefficiency. Being good at Googling is primarily solving every problem that you can ever encounter because someone in the past has already gone through that problem before you. Thus, if a developer has the capacity and skills to bring out solutions from Google, he is undoubtedly speedy and efficient.
5: Ability To Stay Comforted In An Uncomfortable Time
“Confront the problems that are hardest to solve and fight with the concepts that make you sink in the topic to swim out of it” inspired by Cal Newport’s book Deep Work (2016). He further explains that a developer can only stand tough in the most frustrating points if he knows how to explore and understand the hurdle in front of him. It is duly noted that half of the problem is already solved if the developer understands the problem’s depth.
