I bet that if you google advice for new programmers and coding tips to start through, you will receive a million articles and videos from which some might be useful and from which a lot might be ad-trash. Programming can be challenging and it’s always good to hear some tips about how to deal with it all.
Today I spotted this really genuine video though which I found was special. It had been prepared by javidx9, also known as the OneLoneCoder(.com), who shares his experiences based on 25 years of programming. You can also subscribe to his YouTube channel or support his projects on Patreon if you like what he’s doing there.
This is not only interesting for new programmers in my opinion. I think this is also very insightful and motivating for people who have been in the business for quite a while. It might even be that some of the more general things apply even to other sorts of occupations. Judge for yourself. Enjoy!
