Rubbing Elbows

Until I can obtain a job, I will be working by myself most the time. This will inevitably impact my learning because working with others allows shared knowledge and experience for the parties to teach each other. The “Rubbing Elbows” pattern from Dave Hoover’s and Adewale Oshineye’s Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the Aspiring Software CraftsmanContinue reading “Rubbing Elbows”

Sweep the Floor

I will hopefully be starting my software development career soon, and with that I will be joining a new team. Dave Hoover’s and Adewale Oshineye’s Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the Aspiring Software Craftsman’s pattern “Sweep the Floor” suggests “volunteer[ing] for simple, unglamorous, yet necessary, tasks” to contribute to the team. I will be one ofContinue reading “Sweep the Floor”

Kindred Spirits

The pattern “Kindred Spirits” in Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the Aspiring Software Craftsman, by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye, addresses the need for social connections to other software developers.

Groups share knowledge which allows members to learn from each other.Continue reading “Kindred Spirits”

“Use the Source”

“Use the Source” is a pattern from Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the Aspiring Software Craftsman by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye. This pattern focuses on the need for reading code written by other developers. Some good sources of code to examine are open source projects. By examining source code, a programmer can see what theirContinue reading ““Use the Source””
