How to become a World Class Developer in less than 3 weeks

by | Oct 22, 2015

How long does it take for one to be considered a World Class developer? A couple of months? A year or more? The guys at Andela reckon it’d take 4 years but here’s how one can progress from a “good enough” developer status to “World Class” in the space of less than 3 weeks. Yes 3 weeks

Got ya!

Alright, jokes apart, you can’t become a World Class developer in 3 years or 21 days or whatever headline any of those quicksell books come with. Becoming a World Class developer requires far more time and dedication; defintely more than 4 years.

Scientific research has shown that it takes at least 10 years of deliberate practice and continuous self evaluation to become World Class in any field. For further reading, the book Pragmatic Thinking and Learning: Refactor Your Wetware, by Andy Hunt comes highly recommended.

For all the budding developers out there looking to play an instrumental role in building Nigeria’s future, keep your noses to the grindstone. Future glory awaits you.
