Better Code Monday 27/04/20

Good day/evening! 👋

I hope you are healthy and doing well!

Here are this week's three coding tips:

Tip #1 - Project guidelines


"While developing a new project is like rolling on a greenfield for you, maintaining it is a potential dark twisted nightmare for someone else...."

Project guidelines is a good resource for some JavaScript projects best practices. 

Tip #2 - Estimations


Need to estimate your work? Some suggestions to keep in mind:
  • The more unclear the work the more the estimates should have a wider range.
  • Revisit your estimates regularly to manage expectations.
  • List all needed tasks to add a feature. Estimate each task separately.
  • Use a margin of error (1.5-2x).

Tip #3 - Flow


It takes some time to get into flow and interruptions are costly. Aim for longer uninterrupted chunks of coding time.

For example, consider having a 3-hour session as a time-currency. Build your schedule around your sessions not between. Avoid interruptions/meetings between your coding sessions.
That is it folks, wish you a good week!

Stay safe & until next time! 👋
