RE: Drunk Post: Things I've learned as a Sr Engineer

Just want to share this fun read :slight_smile: There are some truths in it so I think it’s worth reading if you are starting or about to start your career.


Here are a few examples that I think are good career advice:

  • Good code is code that can be understood by a junior engineer. Great code can be understood by a first-year CS freshman. The best code is no code at all.

  • The most underrated skill to learn as an engineer is how to document. […]

  • For beginners, the most lucrative programming language to learn is SQL. […]

  • Tech stack matters. […] If you hear Python-dev vs. C++ dev, you think very different things, right? That’s because certain tools are really good at certain jobs. […]

  • Algorithms and data structures are important–to a point. […]
