5. Preparing for interviews

A programming job are often a path to be told and grow as a developer.

In order to induce a decent job, you wish to organize with the elemental programming concepts and problem-solving skills.

I recommend reading “cracking the coding interview”.

6. Writing pseudo code before you begin coding

It is challenging to think through all the various edge cases and issues after you start building.

Take some minutes to plan your code before you dive into it.

7. Using better naming conventions

Nothing is worse than going back to enhance a feature or fix a bug and not having the ability to know what you wrote.

They say half the battle is naming your variables and functions.

Use longer more descriptive names and your future self will thanks.
I wish you nothing but success on your software journey. I hope these habits help you accomplish your goals.
