Kod.io 2014 – How to Become a Better Developer by Markus Prinz

A nice talk on improving the development skills. In sports, taller or muscular people often gets advantages, but, there’s no explicit talents to identify intelligence. One major factor is deliberate practice. As Outliers book indicates, 10,000 hours of practice is required for becoming a expert.

Some key factors are,

Improvement

How to improve is not obvious for everyone. In order to improve, it needs to be either “new” or “hard”.

Repetition

It’s required, but you should not keep repeating the same thing. It needs to be combined with “new” or “hard” point.

Feedback

Having mentor is great for getting feedback. Or, it can be friends or coworker.

Demanding

You have to be concentrated to gain something.

Hard

It involves frustration and failure, but it’s required steps.

Good Goal

It needs to be specific and also the process reaching the goal is important.

Many good programmers pretty much likes programmings and challenges to the new thing. Keep doing it for a long time makes them that way.
