Practice makes perfect. And I believe this is especially true for software engineering roles.
I’ve been following since last week a series of lives coding sessions by Florian Truchot; on advanced WordPress integration with Gutenberg. And as he’ s progressing, I realize that where he is today is the result of several years of assiduous practice.
Beyond having or not having skills, it’s also important to have confidence in yourself; and to have confidence in what you conceive as a software engineer.
