Maybe when you are reading this post, we would already be witnessing the dawning of the New Year. It is more than high-time that you as a software developer, would have stopped jotting down the resolutions for the newborn year. Here are some resolutions of my own, which will help you in rectifying your resolution list. So here it comes, the list, which will help you in kick-starting the New Year with a grand note.
1. Go for the latest frameworks and methods
Learn,learn and learn. Let this be the core Mantra for you this year. The World Wide Web is ever-changing. So, is the way of representing it. Therefore, it is best for you to start the New Year with a new language, a new framework or a new method for coding. It is the perfect way to come up with a new mode of operation. Explore every nooks and corners of the World Wide Web and try to cope up with the latest software development topics, which are floating around. Inculcate everything from both the front-end ...view middle of the document...
3. Community Engagement is necessary this year
Social Media has become the order of the day in 2013. No business is possible without social networking today. If you want to increase your exposure and your venture on a global level, social networking is the best option presently. You should expose yourself to a wider set of niche audience. Discuss with them on Facebook; know more about the software developments, which are getting popular through the Tweets of the people. You can comment on their article or rather have an article of your own. Take the help of social community sites such as GitHub and share your codes. Interpersonal things do matter in building referrals.
4. Resolve to Take Up Programming Practices
For an IT software programmer, coding practices are essential. This year when you are beginning a coding practice, never forget to apply different versions of the code. This will help in making the coding history in the cleanest possible way. Never, I mean, never forget to document the things which, you are planning to code. You would be documenting based on the level of the programming priority.
5. Make Resource and Time Management A Part of your Resolution
This year, promise not to get distracted, when you are sitting at your work console. Today your tool for development might become your biggest distraction. Internet with its gargantuan potentiality has its own way of distracting the users. So when you are coding, focus on the codes only. For the time being, do not let the medium of internet distract you.
6. Take Care of yourself this year
Any serious IT software developer has always been labeled with the tag of a workaholic. Resolve not to become a slave for your clients. Do not get so much absorbed in your work that you forget your personal habits. Sometimes it is best to keep aside the dedication for your work and focus more on your own life. If at times, you feel that, things are really getting out of your hand, it is best to take the day off and go for the joints where you can really chill out.
Just a piece of advice, you spend one-third of your day in the workplace. Therefore, it is best to make your workplace ergonomic and comfortable as possible. So, focus on it.
All the best to all the software programmers out there and have a wonderful year ahead of you.
