The Treasure in Writing Docs - Junior Developers Singapore

Published on: Sunday, 20 October 2019

Speaker: Wei Gao

A True Gem in My Learning Folio as a Work in
Progress Web Developer How much do you think you will learn by writing docs? You
pick up a topic, read the relevant code, blog posts, answered questions, and
organize them into the context of official docs. The magic lies in the role
shift from a developer to an explainer, and an end user to a maintainer. The
mission to explain things to others makes your learning more interactive, and
the top-down approach to the subject matter nurtures your curiosity to go
deeper. What's more, the collective knowledge on the internet becomes your
knowledge, the answers to questions no longer scattered everywhere but live
organized in the official docs, thanks to your contribution. It's probably the
best #learnInPublic habit that too few people know about. It's a true gem I keep
in my learning folio, would you like to carve yours as well? About Wei Gao Wei
is a work in progress React web developer. Runs React Knowledgeable with a few
other cool kids in town, also on the pirate ship of SingaporeCSS. Wei's recently
struggling with coding but is trying very hard to get better. When she's not
coding, she's probably in a climbing gym.
