  • Don't do the one foot deep and one mile wide. Learn a technology that is widely used in the industry and perfect the art of developing in it properly. Stay updated with the latest versions.

  • Don't do the back-end to front-end or vice-versa. Pick one and do it well.

  • Use patterns and proper approaches.

  • Learn how to test your code.

  • Go above and beyond. Work extra hours, review other people's code, ask questions and find a good mentor. Volunteer to take on challenging tasks.

  • Contribute to open-source projects.

  • Just code. Practice makes perfect.
