Productive programming is efficiently using
your time and energy to produce valuable code. As a software developer,
code is my product. I want the highest return in value for the time I spend
programming. That might mean finding ways to output code faster, or writing quality code
that is easier to maintain in the long run. It might also be trying to find the optimal
balance between the quality and quantity of code.
Being a productive programmer requires carefully analyzing my work and my end goals. It includes being resourceful and using tools and technology properly, from learning vim, and how to google, and even how to take breaks effectively. My goal is to always be improving what I do, and how I do it.
Currently I work as a field technician for Zutek. I install technical equipment like servers and terminals, as well as troubleshoot and fix equipment.
