Outstanding thoughts by Hanselman giving advice to a young developer. Really great article that I think a lot of developers (should read) …
“… to try not to focus on the syntax of C# and the details of the .NET Framework, and rather to think about the problems that it solves and the system around it.
Do you understand how your system talks to the file system? To the network? Do you understand latency and how it can affect your system? Do you have a general understanding of “the stack” from when your backend gets data from the database makes anglebrackets or curly braces, sends them over the network to a client/browser, and what that next system does with the info?”
I’d classify/tag this as off-topic but the reality over the quarter of a century in my professional life in IT, I’ve worked out one thing – you are working/coding better when you are happy. This is about the best video I’ve come across on the subject. I actually found it on c-sharpcorner.com for the record.
