Most Correct Habits For a Web Developer

Surely, you have been aware about the habits that can facilitate your life as well as about those that complicate it. Today we shall talk about the most useful habits in the world of software development.

Clarify goals and details

It’s very important for good web developers to have a habit of clarifying goals and tasks. The human brain is arranged in such a way that it resists doing every incomprehensible work.

Therefore, before starting, ask yourself every time: do I understand exactly why I am doing this and what result I am waiting for? How well do I understand the task itself and the process of solving it? If the answer is not like “It is 100 percent clear what and when and what for to do” then clarify the situation: specify details with the team leader, client, and teammates.

Here the principle works: if you do not understand the question asked then put it to yourself.

Remember the business sense of tasks.

Another good habit, partly related to the previous one, is to always find out what final benefits your actions will bring. In other words, if a web-developer does not understand who exactly he will make happier by developing this table or writing that function, then most likely he is screwing around. We at WebSailors say that don’t write code for the sake of code: try to find out how your actions will help the business and its target audience. Even if the strategic goals are not spelled out in your requirements list.

This approach is to create clear and useful user stories. Each such story begins with the user’s need to do something and ends with some result that partially or fully satisfies his needs. The set of stories should fully cover all the possible interests of users in this niche. Only in such a situation, the project itself makes sense.
