I really enjoyed reading this article:
The big take away from this article is how important it is to stay humble to prevent getting stuck as an expert beginner. I do think it's important to take pride in your work and have confidence. Also many are dealing with imposter syndrome. On the other hand there are many on the other extrem that have such a big ego they can never be wrong or listen to others. If we want to grow as developers it's important to stay humble and be willing to listen to good ideas regardless of where they come from.
This reminds me of this Bible proverb:
Pride is before a crash, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.
So remember stay humble, keep listening and learning. Best way to keep growing! Do you have any examples where humility helped you learn or grow? What do you think of the points made in the article above?
As we all know being a competent software developer or engineer means continuously learning throughout your career. It’s great! That makes this profession exciting and allows to escape everyday routine at work. In fact, it’s not a job anymore - it’s a lifestyle 👩💻👨💻
