The Road From Junior to Senior Developer
Understanding and improving your personal development skills can assist you to advance in your career.
Involves the following steps:
Every developer is responsible for finding and resolving bugs.
There are a few debugging guidelines:

2-Contain the bug.
3-You're looking in the wrong place if you can't find the bug.
One of the most undervalued skills a developer requires is the ability to make technical decisions; if you're a good decision-maker, you can guide yourself and your team for Developing Quality Software.
Mentoring other Developers
Mentorship is a learning relationship between an experienced person and someone who wanted to advance in their career.
Mentorship has been the best thing that has accelerated my growth and the growth of other engineers around me.
Computers don't care if your code is simple or readable as long as it actually works.
Humans do care about simplicity and readability. Especially when collaborating with other programmers.
When programmers struggle to understand the code, it will take them many hours to produce something valuable.
Communication Skills and Code review
You're coding and pushing changes to the codebase, and you're wondering, "How can I get feedback on these codes I'm writing?"
The solution is Code Review.
It allows the entire team to see what is delivered, assists each other in improving code quality, and spreads knowledge among developers.
Job specialization is beneficial because it allows you to focus your interests on a specific career path that can provide stability and other advantages.
Some benefits of job specialization
1- Competence in a task
2- Specialization in equipment
3- Increased speed between tasks
