re: What's your advice to someone over the age of 30 considering a career in software development? VIEW POST


I think the most important thing I learned on the job (30+ years experience) is this:

  • If you learn one programming language really well; learning a new one does not take that much time as the first. (just like algorithms)
  • Software development is about READING software. Focus on making your software readable by others (don't focus on fast or one-liners)
  • Software development is for social people. If you can't talk easy to other developers you will have a hard time in a software developer team.
