  1. You know so much more than you realise - The more experience you have ,the more things there are that you know  you know  .But also ,the more things you now and you don’t know the more .In development I would say some time we underestimate the task ,that i know how to do these but actually we don’t know the exact solution ,but some time you think you don’t know the things ,but actually you know when you make flow of that so Learn what you need to know and what you don’t need to know.    
  1. Understanding the fundamentals of programming is essential - Even if you are experienced with the programming language, it’s important to have a good grasp of the fundamentals of programming.
  1. Debugging is important - Debugging is important problem skill learning how to debug effectively is a vital skill for any developer when I stack in any problem before asking to anyone I started debugging and finding where is the issues after that will find the solution for the problem otherwise there is always option to ask someone or search for the solution  on the internet.  
  1. Automation is key - Automation is a powerful tool for the developer, as it can help save time and effort on daily routine task.  
  1. Documentation is essential - This is good practice before want to know or learn any programming language or anything must go through the documentation, good documentation is essential for developer to able to understand and use code.
  1. Version control is essential - Version control is a key tool for developers, as it allows them to keep track of changes to their codebase and manage collaborative projects.
  1. Collaboration is important - Work with others can help you to learn faster and create better code so It’s important to learn how to collaborate effective with other developer.

  1. Learning never stops - As technology evolves so do the skills and knowledge that developers need. Keeping up with the latest trends technologies is essential for staying ahead of the curve.
  1. Don’t only apply for job in the language you learned - Coding language have lots of similarity I have started learning coding in C and C++ .I don’t know why it is used but I just want to say this is a language of mother where we learn the basic of coding learn and how to tackle logical problems then i started learning web development languages like HTML,CSS,JAVASCRIPT  from very basic so I just want to say that language doesn’t matter to do job ,what matters is what we learn from the languages. Now I am working with No Code-Low code technology.
