re: What is a type of "overconfidence" you have observed in developers? VIEW POST


The over confidence I've observed in myself is the standard dev "of course my code works right" stuff, especially as I've gotten more senior. The way I protect myself against it is on every PR I have a standard template I make myself write out : not just what am I changing and why, but how did I test it and what docs needed updates. The act of writing out the testing has made me realize stuff I missed, and more than once I found a bug when I went back to do the testing.
