Chris Roane's Blog:
10 Things I Wish I Knew as a Web Programmer 10 Years Ago
March 16, 2010 @ 14:25:20

Chris Roane has put together a list of things that he wishes someone would have told him back when he was starting out as a web programmer ten years ago, helpful hints that could have made things easier in the long run.

When I reflect on my past experience as a web programmer, there are many things that I know now that I didn't know ten years ago. The learning process was valuable, but I could have been at a different spot today as a PHP web programmer if I knew these things earlier. Sometimes you don't have the info when it would benefit you the most, but my hope is that this list will give you something to reflect on.

Most of the tips a more of the general tech nature with a few non-tech ones thrown in. Here's a few examples:

  • Over Estimate Your Time
  • Don't Assume that Where You are Working is the Best Opportunity
  • Learn How to Use and Work with SVN
  • Master Organization
  • Learn Outside of Work

Read the full post for more great tips.
