4. Accurate Self-Assessment > Rubbing Elbows

Rubbing Elbows

I enjoy being given a certain amount of freedom in order to interpret or to come up with stuff, but I do enjoy collaboration. I seek and thrive on projects where I am going to learn from the people I’m working with.

William Kempe

Context

While you may have mentors and kindred spirits that you meet with periodically, when it comes to developing software, you work alone.

Problem

Your productivity has reached a plateau, your learning is stagnating, and you have the feeling that there are superior techniques and approaches to the craft that are eluding you.

Solution

Find ways to sit with another software developer and accomplish a hands-on task together, side-by-side. There are some things that can only be learned while you are sitting with another software developer to accomplish a shared objective.
