- As a developer, do you know all the core skills of the craft?
- Do you feel like you are being left behind or treading water in your current work?
- Are you the one everyone comes to, but are yourself left with no-one else to ask?
Programming, software development and tech are vast domains of knowledge and an enormous surface area to try and cover. While you don’t need to cover all of it, you might still feel the pressure to do so. Unfortunately, it’s normal to feel like you are falling behind. It is hard to accurately assess yourself compared to the rest of the industry and whether you know enough to work in a healthy, professional way.
Personally, my biggest professional growth has come when I’ve had someone holding me accountable, someone to help remove obstacles, someone to talk to about the tech and the profession. Now, I can offer that to others. I have a history of success bringing inexperienced developers into the profession and more experienced developers up to speed in a new team. I also have a strong network of freelancers that I can bring in for specific sessions if I need a consultation on specific skills.
Whether you are just getting started on your first job out of a bootcamp, feeling stuck after ten years in the same stack, or anywhere in-between, feel free to get in touch and I can probably help you!
