Episode 7: Nine Beliefs Developers Have That Aren’t True
In this episode the guys discuss beliefs that developers hold (or act as if they hold) that simply are not true. They delve into commonly held yet erroneous beliefs that developers tend to have about work, employers, other departments, and more. While it is not an exhaustive list they cover everything from interacting with others to interacting with databases, to changing specs mid project, and misunderstandings about how business works. These are the sort of critical mis-communications and non-optimal behaviors that distinguish a less experienced and less professional developer from those that have played the game a while and gotten some life experience. Being aware of these will help improve your employer’s (and fellow coworker’s) perception of you, as well as steer you away from problems that can cause you grief later.
