Beyond practice projects.
Practice makes perfect, but most personal projects don’t see the light of day. Work on real-world products and learn how to professionally apply your skills while making sure that your effort counts where it matters
Beyond rigid curriculums.
Agile, scrum, kanban, code and design reviews... Being successful and executing at work and takes a lot more than a list of textbooks to study.
One can only learn so much listening to someone talk without actively participating. It’s one thing to have knowledge of individual skills, but quite another to piece it all together to create something amazing.
Progress over time
You shouldn’t have to prove your worth to someone in a 2-hour do-or-die session because no test can indicate your overall proficiency. Build your profile over time and show the world who you really are.
