The History of 20 Reasons You Need to Stop Stressing About Reddit web development
blog Sep 05, 2022
In this video, I discuss a few of the topics that I’ve been discussing in my videos, the most important being the subject of a developer’s identity and the importance of having good documentation and a clear process for defining one.
Reddit is one of the biggest web development forums on the web, and as such it is one of the best places to get help on the topic of developer identity and documentation. The process of defining a developer identity is a fairly complex topic, and there are a lot of moving parts to it that all need to be thought out and fully understood before you can move forward.
While documentation is the key, the main point that I want to make is that it is not enough to just write up the process. I mean, it’s nice to be able to write down all the things that you should do, but if you don’t have a process in place, then you have no idea what it is that you should be doing.
So one place where you can start making your process is to take the time to look over your existing documentation, and really understand it. It doesn’t have to be 100% perfect, but you want to be able to look at it when you do your first web project and say, “Yeah, I understand how this all works,” and then actually do things.
You don’t want to start off with a blank slate. There are many things that you will find when looking at your documentation that you will have to change. We’ll get into some of these steps in the coming weeks in this article and get into some of the other things that will need to be changed, but the goal here is to really understand what you’re doing and what your process is.
If you are in a position where you are trying to build your first web app, chances are your documentation is in some form of a web/html/js format. If you aren’t, and you are thinking you need to be, you are doing something wrong. It is very important that you have some kind of documentation that you can reference as if you were a seasoned programmer, but don’t be intimidated by it.
