Taking Notes is Important for Development¹

First Year Review

Tips to become more successful

Completing my first year as a software engineer arrived sooner than I had imagined. To evaluate my overall progression, I began reviewing my collection of notes to reflect on various situations, analyzing both successes and failures. I realized some of what made my first year successful could also be useful to other programmers starting their career. This is by no means an exhaustive list and some may be already doing everything I mention. I have personally benefited from reading blogs and helpful articles from other writers and this serves as my way to start giving back to the community.
