Being a programmer isn’t an easy task these days, we live in the era where just knowing one single programming language can’t help you get those wonderful growth opportunities in the job market!
Henceforth here are some simple 5 rules to help you become a simply better programmer.
1. Make mistakes
We all find it hard to find errors in our code, but that is how you gain expertise in a particular language. Even Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t a coder and neither was Bill Gates. They spent nights coding and cracking their errors.
2. Chat with Seniors
Your seniors, be it at work or in College can be your best mentor to help you out in not only becoming a smart programmer but also guide your way towards a brighter future.
3. Change Job
Once you enter the corporate world, you can’t be the same guy you use to be during college days. To grow you can’t spend more time in the same team and around same people for long, switch to some other company after you think you have gained desirable experience.
4. Code less debug more
Coding is an art and to master an art you need to understand it well by practicing it. Henceforth debugging your code will help you in not only understanding the code you wrote but also master it. It’s like getting to know the physics behind every block of Lego you create.
5. Participate to become smart programmer
This is what matters the most, get out of your comfort zone and participate in competitions. No matter even if you end up being last, at least you’ll make friends who can help you in your journey ahead!
