Simple Life of a Keen Developer

The Truth about Development

leave a comment

If we’re being honest, I think a lot of us would like to continue to be developers, learn and invest ways in making coding efficient, quick, maintainable, and flexible. In essence, we’d like to remain forever young. However, time flows in one direction. And the tracks we leave behind get etched in what we do and write. I still remember the first team I worked with, the first interview, the first code review. They’ve left their mark.

As a Developer, I’ve always believed in the power of technology. But it’s a mean and not and end in itself. And coding and automation may not always be the only solution. A strong skills in analysis, project management, and being able to research the best solution and architect-ing a solid design are all just as vital but are sadly left out in most of the evaluation processes.

As a consultant it always puts things in perspective to deliver a working evolving system whether it is a throw-away application to be used for a year, or something that will remain a core part of the system 20 years later, it is the question of what is the best system and solution to what I’m being asked to deliver.
