People learned that the most basic hygienic practices like washing your hands and staying away from crowded places could keep you safe. Then there are also economic learnings like the importance of having a website.
It was always a given that websites are important in business. But during the pandemic, it became quite clear that a website is a lifeline in business, particularly when things go extremely bad. As in this case of the COVID-19 pandemic, where at the start, people were ordered to stay at home.
Always willing to learn
Technology is ever-changing. That is its nature. You can’t just allow technology to evolve while you remain static. You have to evolve with the technology. You have to study every improvement that technology brings.
There are so many ways to study nowadays. You don’t have to strictly abide by the learnings within the four walls of the classroom. You can take short courses or you can do your own digging on the internet—just make sure you find the right source of information. Don’t ever think that you have reached your peak. There is always something else to learn. If it’s not about the knowledge, then it’s about the skills.
The concept of developing and programming should make you happy. If not, then at least, these should be things that will satisfy you. You will never be great at anything if you are not passionate. There is a level of passion needed in creating a great website. A website isn’t just a bunch of codes. There is a level of creativity to it. We all know that creativity just doesn’t flow without passion.
Website development is about collaboration. The client tells you what they want and then you create something based on that. But it is a back-and-forth thing. You can’t just accept everything a client tells you even though you know that it won’t be good.
There should be a meeting of the minds. You have to say what’s on your mind to make the project better. Communication is an important key in making a great website because there should be a balance between technical and non-technical matters.
If you are a programmer, there is no lane that you should be staying at. You should be versatile enough to try different lanes. Not just try, you should be versatile enough to be an expert in different lanes, if that’s possible.
That’s why you need to learn so that you won’t be stuck doing one thing all the time. It’s not just that. It gets pretty boring when you are on a routine. It keeps the passion alive when you are doing different things at different times. You can always go back to your favorite lane when you have to. But every now and then, you have to diversify. This will be good for your portfolio.
If you are serious about being a great programmer, then you should want to get different clients. They will be varied and diverse. That will help you improve your work because you are learning a lot of different things.
