A Developers New Year Resolutions

SJC SJC Profile: SJC

I’ve never really been big on New Years Resolutions as it seems that I, like most people, have found that making such resolutions hasn’t made a difference for me.  However as I find myself plowing full-speed ahead into 2008 I thought it might be appropriate for me to at least identify a handful of areas within which (perhaps) I could look at “improving”.  Upon further thought, I realized that I am certainly not alone when it comes to failed resolutions, or areas where I might be able to do better.  Hence I share with others my thoughts on some areas of development which I believe could provide a positive impact on my performance as a developer — and probably others around me.

A Developers New Year Resolutions

  • I will embrace learning
    • There are many times that the rapidly-changing development environment seems to be a burden.  There is always something new to learn.
    • I vow to remember that learning is powerful and I truly love learning.
  • I will document
    •  Nobody is standing over me to see if I document areas about which questions can arise
    • documenting will save time – minimize mistakes – “Why Not do it?”
  • I will communicate
    • with other developers
    • with my clients
    • with those around me who say “Get a Life!”
  • I will PLAN
    • testing to be done on code I produce
    • my work – and “work” my plan!

Happy New Year to All!

    And just what is it you say to those who tell you to "Get a life"? I like the resolutions. As a matter of fact I think I'll make 'em all & then blow 'em off just like I do with all my other New Year resolutions. Oops - I guess I just communicated with another developer, didn't I?

    Yup -- this would qualify as communication with another developer! As for those who tell me to "Get a life" I offer them an opportunity to subsidize my activities that would qualify - which seems to fall on deaf ears.
