10 years for me, or 8 depending on if you count my early stint as an SRE/maintenance programmer fixing bugs.
My two biggest takeaways are:
Prove that it works with tests, or expect that it doesn't
Plan out small discrete iterative changes you can complete in a day, and commit them every day
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
