In this new post to his site Robert Basic has shared some interesting (personal) insights about what he's learned over the last four years as a developer on a project.
Since yesterday was my last day on a project after four years and two months, I decided to take a look back on those four years and write down some of the things I learned.
Things I learned about being a better listener, a better communicator, a better team mate, a better programmer.
He shares his own personal experience around six different points, all good things to keep in mind for any developer out there:
- Leave your ego at the door
- Don’t play the blame game
- Take responsibility
- It’s OK to say I don’t know
- Knowing the business domain is important
- Ask why?
He ends the post by looking forward to the future and what the next challenge will bring for he and his team.
