Test and Code: 64: Practicing Programming

Python, by admin.

I want you to get the most out of being a software developer, or test engineer, or whatever you do that makes this podcast relevant to your life.

By "get the most" I mean:

  • the most fun
  • the most value
  • more career options
  • probably more responsibility
  • maybe even more money, that’d be cool

I want you to start (or continue) studying and practicing your skills.

But not just random practice, I’ve got a strategy to help you focus what to study.

Why am I talking about this now? Here’s some background on how I re-learned how to have fun with code refactoring through code challenges.

I’m going to write up the whole list as a blog post, which I’ll share first with my Patreon Supporters, second with my email list and slack channel and then as an actual post somewhere.
