Part 2: Pragmatic Programmer

  • ‘The greatest of all weaknesses is the fear of appearing weak’🌒
  • One of the cornerstones of the pragmatic philosophy is the idea of taking responsibility for yourself and your actions in terms of your career advancement, your project, and your day-to-day work.🌦
  • ‘We can be proud of our abilities, but we must be honest about our shortcomings — our ignorance as well as our mistakes.’🌻
  1. “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.”🦚
    I need to start practicing this more often. While working on a project rather than consuming time to convince everyone to try out a particular idea, what I can do is rather just implement it and then ask for feedback.
  2. Invest Regularly in Your Knowledge Portfolio
    - Learn at least one new language every year.👷‍♀️
    - Read a technical book each quarter.📖
    - Read nontechnical books, too.🎏
    - Participate more, socialize to know what is happening around.💡
    - Take classes.🔬

We earn because of our knowledge, so we should invest a part of our earning in our knowledge.
