Today marks my first month as a fresh SW in As a associate engineer. I mainly deal with ReactJS and Flask in front and back end respectively. I've. I've some past experience with Flask (made a chat bot once) unlike React which is totally new for me. So far, my work as has been a mix of both excitement and challenges.
My main issue is that there's so much that I don't know yet I would love to learn. I want to pursue cloud certifications, become a full-stack engineer (my front-end skills are rusty compare to back-end for now), contribute in OSS projects and learn sign sign language.
I've heard a lot of stories about SWs getting burned out period after 3-5 years because apparently they start to loose their stamina to absorbing latest knowledge. I find this thought really scary to be honest. Spending 5 years in CS undergrad just to get stagnant after 2 or 3 would be nightmare for me.
In short,my fears boil down to these questions:
- How can one maintain a habit of constant learning for lifetime?
- What sort of strategies have you adopted for learning new stuff?
- How do you develop a sustaining stamina?
I would love to hear your thoughts and tips on this!
