Don’t Be a Jack Of All Trades Developer!
As developers, we are all aware that web technologies are changing so fast that no human is ever in the power of learning everything. But how should we deal with it?
I think this is one of those topics developers are not talking about a lot. So I thought, let’s open up the conversation and be open about it.
Don’t try to master everything
After more than ten years in this industry, I’ve seen people who know a lot, and I mean a lot! And when you are standing at the start of your career as a developer, this can feel overwhelmed.
Most of the time, people who know a lot have tried a lot of different things. They made a lot of mistakes in their experimentation. But they aren’t a master of everything.
A master of everything isn’t possible for us humans. Our brains have their limits.
Give yourself focus
To prevent yourself from feeling the pressure of knowing everything, it’s a good idea to focus on a few topics in your work.
For a backend developer, it can be wise to focus on the .Net framework or any other backend framework.
This will give you much more focus on your work and a bigger chance to become an expert in that particular piece of work.
You are not alone
If you have any doubts about your expertise, I will tell you “You are not alone”! I guarantee you that 100% of all the developers have periods in their career they doubt a lot about their expertise.
Don’t worry about it! Instead, make sure you have focus. After all, a Jack of all trades is a master of none.
Hopefully, reading this will give you the courage to add some more focus to your work and become an expert.
Remind yourself that becoming an expert in technology takes time. So take that time, and don’t pressure yourself on that!
