Learn the basics,
tune your attitude,
and have a meaningful career
as a software developer.
You can choose a rather boring one. Consisting mostly of the day-to-day drudgery, closing tickets one after the other, taking pride of the company's products, and citing the achievements your team pulled off, all for a fair salary.
Or you can choose the hard path. Go absolutely crazy over getting better, see the potential behind every difficulty, have rock-solid knowledge of the foundations. Be the one who can make ambitious projects a reality, to whom the technology stack is a mere preference rather than a limitation. Be a competent developer.
Being a rockstar developer is not a matter of mastery in technology. You don't need to be a math wizard, or be able to implement the toughest algorithms on a whiteboard. Having the right attitude towards others and your work, along with confidence in the basics are the key skills.
During my professional career spanning more that a decade, I worked the standard 9-to-5 for both small and large companies, failed a small startup, freelanced for years, and did remote contract work. I've worked on countless projects, and in many teams. I believe my experiences will help you see the world from a different perspective and potentially avoid the mistakes I've made.
