The Developerhood gathers all the developers who want to aim just a bit higher. To be a valuable senior developer often means dealing with different kinds of people. It requires a skillset that is quite different from the one you learn in programming courses.
You need to be able to
- Listen carefully and know how to ask the right questions
- Explain and reason skillfully with all audiences
- Deal with all kinds of personalities without losing your temper
- Withstand conflicts and turn those situations around to your benefit
- Give and take feedback and turn it into personal growth
- Work well with others, learn from them as well as teach them
- Recognize your own strengths and weaknesses
It is very slow if not impossible to learn these by yourself. That’s why we’re here.
Developerhood is like adulthood
I believe that being a developer (coder, programmer or software engineer) is a state of mind. It is a profession you grow into and it requires skills, tools and competencies that strengthen over time. Yes, knowing few languages might get you a job, but it doesn’t yet make you a good developer. Time, focus and a lot of work will get you there.
Developerhood is like brotherhood
This is the place where all you lonely wolves can come together. Nobody will shoot you here. Here it is completely okay to admit you have no idea why people are so strange and communication fails all the time. Because they are and it does. Let’s figure it out together.
Developerhood is like neighborhood
I come to your door to borrow some flour and you can lend my riffle.
I aim to help a thousand developers reach new heights.
