"Learn to work even harder on yourself than you do on your job." - Jim Rohn.
For many working in software development, no matter what platform or language they're programming within, they rely heavily on their employer for their professional development. While there's nothing wrong with taking a reactive approach to your own professional development, relying on an Enterprise organization to create programs and offer training courses that are designed to improve your skills doesn't have to be the only way to improve your coding skills. There are many different ways that developers can take learning and development into their own hands. Whether you want to hone your skills and become a power coder in an existing development platform or learn other platforms and languages that you don't already know - here are a few things you should be doing in order to become better at your craft:
As Wallace D. Wattles said in The Science of Being Great: "If you will make the necessary effort, you can develop any talent." Being a better developer doesn't have to be difficult. By simply doing research, reading, taking regular IT training courses and having the right mindset, any developer can become better.
Don't you think it's time to develop yourself for a change?
