The most common question I get asked.
More often than not the answer is simple:
Spend more time writing code
Keep up with the latest trends (YouTube/Twitter/
dev.to) Just as an example.
Experiment and deep dive into specific tools/ frameworks/languages
Actually read documentation (before you start coding
and again once you've built something to help solidify
There are no shortcuts in this industry. Time, trends and docs are the simplest things that will elevate your skills and accelerate your career.
