I love reading things like this: Top ten things ten years of professional software development has taught me

Summary:

  • “Object orientation is much harder than you think”
  • “The difficult part of software development is communication”
  • “Learn to say no”
  • “If everything is equally important, then nothing is important”
  • “Don’t over-think a problem”
  • “Dive really deep into something, but don’t get hung up”
  • “Learn about the other parts of the software development machine”
  • “Your colleagues are your best teachers”
  • “It all comes down to working software”
  • “Some people are assholes (…) Don’t take this too hard”
