ABC – Always Be Coding / Mike’s Theory

  • Code everyday
  • Lang / Platform doesn’t matter (much)
  • Try something new every few months
  • Try to be as idiomatic as possible
  • Selectively bring ideas / patterns from your experimental coding into your main stack
    • Example: maybe after writing some F# you’ll find a way to be more functional that is beneficial for your C#
  • Intentionally challenge your biases and preconceived notions
    • “Hate” Microsoft? Go write some C#
    • “Hate” Apple? Go write some Swift
  • Beware the Kool-Aide
  • Coding Katas
