Nice article! 💪👍
Planning your project before starting to code is so important.
Setting up a kanban board and working with it is something, that helped me a lot while working on a project.

I like the idea to ask yourself the question if someone would "review/understand/merge" your code if you would submit it for someone else.

This approach along with using a different editor to review your own code lets you see your work in a different light and may show you some mistakes.

I will try this approach in the future for my projects.

Maybe you want to read my article about my process of creating a web application. 😋
I used some of the tips for working on my project too.

Thank you! Its always important to remember that things can be broken down into smaller problems until you can solve them.
