On gaining coding experience…

I think life and coding comes oftentimes comes down to my simple formula:

  • Try
  • Fail
  • Learn
  • Improve
  • Repeat

So does this mean that the working developer has gone through more trial and error than the aspiring developer, that the senior developer has gained more experience and learned from them than the junior developer?

Also how much experience can be gained indirectly vs. must be gained directly?

I don’t know the answer to any of these questions so I just focus on 2 things with coding–right action and fun:

  1. Doing the right actions that bring me closer to my goals, that improve my coding knowledge and skills
  2. Having fun as much as I can with my coding journey 🙂

I will never “arrive” as a coder, so I can only enjoy programming as much as possible and as often as possible. So far so good 🙂
