We developers spend so much time focusing on the details of our work that we sometimes forget about the big picture. The presentation below from try! Swift Tokyo has some really helpful perspective. 🤯
Think about building the right thing before building it right.
Why are you making software? Know your motivations. It affects how you do your job.
Who do you write code for? Think about how you relate to your company and the end user.
What happens when your tech stack changes? Be resilient in your career. Try new things while also shipping apps.
Be less precious about code.
Realistically, how long will this code last? How robust is robust enough? Be pragmatic. Almost all the code I’ve written in the last few years is gone by now, either retired or completely rewritten.
Don’t try to be perfect. Don’t hold back out out fear.

How often do you test? Unit tests are a means to an end. Passing unit tests alone does not mean it’s a good app.
