On The Value Of Fundamentals In Software Development
Have you ever seen someone walk up to a keyboard, start coding and not stop for 10, 15, 20 minutes, no need to refer to anything? Impressive isn't it? They seem to produce an amazing amount of useful code in a very short period time and when they leave people whisper the word genius. But there is nothing genius about it, just someone who took the time to learn the micro level fundamentals in that particular area – the rest was just practice. You can do the same, get your macro and micro level fundamentals down solid, after that it's all about strategic practice, but that is a story for another post.
