Developing habits is important in web development, but not all habits are created equal. If you are a beginner learning about the world of web dev, you should do your best to pick up habits that work for you, don’t alienate your fellow programmers, and allow for future growth.
That’s not to say you shouldn’t go against the status quo from time to time, stretch your creative muscles, and try new things. You should. But, some controversial habits may be best left alone.
Here are 3 controversial web dev habits:
1 My Language Is Better Than Yours
Technology changes rapidly and so do programming languages. If you get into the habit of only working with one language in all instances regardless of project needs, resources, and changing markets, then you’re more likely to fail growing as a developer.
Having a preferred language isn’t bad, but it’s best to be open to new languages and opinions. If you’re just starting out, you can check out Python, Java, and Web courses from Devmountain.
