7 Habits of Highly Effective Programmers (ft. ex-Google TechLead)



Ex-Google TechLead presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach to programming. The first 100 people to go to http://blinkist.com/techlead are going to get unlimited access for 1 week to try it out. You’ll also get 25% off if you want the full membership.

Over the years, you find that programming is a field littered with pitfalls. I’ve seen so many health problems in my colleagues. And mental burnout, low productivity, loss of focus, and getting lost in the weeds. For those lucky enough to have landed a job in programming, they are not out of the woods just yet. Learn my top 7 habits for being an effective coding machine.

I like the word habit here. A habit is a fundamental change in behavior and mindset. I think that’s the key — any short-term “tip” or “trick” can only yield short-term results. It is the long-lasting value of good habits that will power you through decades of coding. How many people do you know who have been coding for a decade and still manage to stay happy and healthy? Yep, just one (me).

Let me know your top habits in the comments below.

  1. Hello TechLead I wondered, recently I started spending quite a lot of time in front of my computer, it's a desktop connected to a 43" TV. Due to the fact that the screen is fairly big I sit around 2 meters away from the screen in a chair which is called "Poang" it's a very comfortable (non rocking version) chair from IKEA that supports your lower back as well as neck. The sitting position is a little different from a standard office chair but I've been spending around 8+ hours a day in it for the last few months and did not notice any problems. Do you think this is a good position to work or maybe there are some downsides? Anybody else who has experience regarding this subject is welcome to advise, thank you.

    Ps. Keyboard with trackpad is on my lap.

  2. GFUEL MIXED WITH TYLER1 BLOODRUSH MIXED IN WITH PROTEIN POWDER AFTER A 5AM 3 HOUR FULL BODY WORK OUT WITH A COLD SHOWER BEFORE AND AFTER, YOU DRINK THAT AND THEN YOU POUR A PURE CUP OF STRAIGHT JUICE AND YOU ARE IN THE ZONE FOR THE WHOLE DAY.
