There’s an art to making software simple. But, if you pay attention, your team can reap the benefits of a simple and safe codebase.
Recently, I worked on a web application with a micro frontend architecture. I was excited to see what this new codebase had in store.
I've recently utilized a Documentation Checklist to help keep my software documentation up-to-date while saving time and effort.
Having a linter makes collaboration across teams effective, since everyone can understand one another's changes to the code.
Transitioning onto an established team can feel like being a newbie all over again, especially if the codebase, languages, or team dynamics are unfamiliar.
Be patient when learning a large code base. It's a long process, but if you keep working at it, eventually everything will come into focus.
Key takeaways from my first big software project include asking lots of questions and "start at the root, end at the leaf."
Drilling the codebase can help answer many questions without assistance and help you build confidence as an entry-level developer.
