After starting a new job two weeks ago, I try to draw a conclusion of the insights I think I gained during the last year.
The following may sound patronising, but it is not intended that way. It is just an attempt of self-reflection, and I am aware, that I could hardly practice what I preach ...
Don't be afraid of the 3Cs: Command-Control-Correct! This constant iteration is constructive and imperative to be productive! This has nothing to do with repression or dictatorship. [Actually having a manager that has done some additional military service can be beneficial here ;-)] As a developer it is very important that you know that your work is relevant and somebody cares!
Some kind of conceptual modal/ubiquitous language of the business problem is very important. It has to be documented somehow and become common knowledge of all involved team members (including stake holders).
Watch out for the danger of retrofitting the conceptual model after an existing implementation ... Tell don't Ask has meaning on all levels...
My understanding of production-ready quality has been utterly overhauled.
I offer courses for modern web-development in the enterprise:
environment (Java, .NET).
