Even though I have little experience, I would like to give some tips to those who are planning on becoming a software developer. Although I do not claim to have much programming wisdom or experience, but because these tips have always helped me, I’m going to share them to you.
1. Ask questions. It should be natural. “Google it.” If you don’t get any answers there, ask questions from everyone who knows what they’re talking about, in this case: programmers. A Chinese proverb once said “He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. “
2. Get familiar with modern development tools. Usually, universities don’t pay much attention to the environment of development and other programs and utilities necessary for high-grade work. Update and familiarize yourself with the better tools for programming.
3. Plan ahead. Before a project, estimate how much time it takes to do something and analyze the work after. Do it for different types of programming work. The developer who performs and finishes the work right on time is much more valuable than the developer who sometimes performs the work faster than others.
4. Organize your priorities. Always start with the more important projects. When you have projects with the same deadlines, it’s always better to do the much easier ones first. This will make you much more efficient.
These four tips have helped me become more productive. I hope it works for you too!
