Today marks the official end to another project as it sails away with the product owner and the users. This one was fun, working on a project where I had complete control over the code and the decisions that drove the technology really empowered and had me enjoying every step.
I believe this post is just going to be me rambling on about recent events, making me realize that my communication skills need some work. I find it hard to put my thoughts into words sometimes. People have said this comes with the developer territory.
Where does this leave off my day? I really enjoyed working with my team and driving to an end goal, actually accomplishing it! What a great feeling to know that what you set out to do got accomplished in a reasonable amount of time, with a minimal amount of headache!
I’ve been interested in starting some sort of coder mentor program, that would work with anyone interested in learning development, but just doesn’t really know where to start. Looking around online, I haven’t really been able to find something, and wonder if anyone would be interested in that sort of thing.
The main point is that, as a developer, you have come to gather many tools for solving problems. Maybe its the mighty google, specialty forums, IRC, or stackoverflow style sites, but how did I happen across all those sites in the first place? How would fresh new developers know to head over and start coding on github, or know they should ditch installing apache on windows and get a free aws account?
I believe many new developers could benefit from someone they could ask these sorts of questions, without feeling like they are going to get their heads bit off by all the condescending, RTFM, negative peoples out there.
I was told a few days ago that I ramble on a bit, looks like its probably true.
