Becoming a Better Developer
Play Becoming a Better Developer
In the words of Phil Haack, “I Love to code.” I’m never happier than when crafting a new piece of functionality to delight the users of my software. A few years ago I came to a truly horrible personal realisation: my code had too many defects. While I was still meeting deadlines and delivering working code, I felt I was spending too much (way too much) of my time fixing things. Getting rid of defects that shouldn’t have been there in the first place is not a fun way to spend a day, a week or a month. In this talk I pass on some of the things I’ve learnt about being a better developer - how I stay on top of what I’m doing, how I work to become a little bit better every day, and how I strive to write code that is simpler to write, easier to debug, and more resistant to defects in the first place.
