Last week marked my one-year anniversary of working full time as a software engineer!
I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. When I look back to what I could do a year ago, I can see how much I’ve learned and grown as a developer, and I feel really proud of that. At the same time, I can see how much I still don’t know, and I love that part of my job is to keep pushing myself to learn more, one week at a time.
Every teacher has pet peeves. Every programmer does too. This post touches on something that is on my teacher list AND my programmer list: impractical examples.
As part of my professional development, I watch a lot of tutorials. A lot. I want to get all the interesting background knowledge and CS fundamentals that college students studying programming get, plus stay up to date on current tools and frameworks.
