Wanna know how I do it?
Let me share some secret sauce ingredients….
Let’s face it. We all work with other people. Code is very rarely now a one-man project. It requires a lot of hands working together. Most of us programmers get hired to work in a team setting. But how to do it successfully?
What you’ve learned at school / college / bootcamp about coding has almost nothing to do with programming in an actual job setting… I mean, be real with me, how many times have you even heard the word “maintainable“ next to “code”?
How you think about coding is more important than years of experience you list on your resume. Ask any dev who conducts interviews.
It’s like with anything else in life. Can’t succeed without proper mindset. Sooo..
