We have heard of several training courses for developers that guarantees to deliver more refined and polished tech skills that can make you an adept software programmer. With this article, I have come up with a little unique training idea.
If you are an amateur or a well-versed developer, you can undergo an endurance training process to further fulfill your professional endeavors. This training process is somehow similar to the athletic training process. While keeping the principles of athletic principles in mind, developers can make better strives in the correct direction and then could efficiently meet their objectives.
While getting trained for a marathon, one basically teaches his body to adapt the required stamina and strength that can help cover the greatest of distance. This would probably require a few training sessions. You can observe a breakthrough in your performance by the end of each session. To withstand that harsh training, you will need to consume a good and healthy diet that can charge up your body. This is not it, you will also need to give some rest to your body to ensure a better result in the next attempt.
Here is a list of a few prepositions involved under the athletic training that can also improve your work quality and efficiency as a developer. Let’s have a glimpse into that.
1. Augment Your Performance By Beating Your Own Score
Here the prime objective is to time-effectively generate a better code, that is the code should be developed in the best possible time with minimum possible bugs.
What you can do is, strive harder and put your best efforts in the task and measure your success. Try it again by pushing in more efforts and keeping the goal of creating a new score in the mind. By doing so, you can improve the success rate, that is, it will heighten your performance bar and will help make you a better developer.
2. Set Yourself Mentally Fit
Stretching your mental muscles is essential to drive your brain at a good pace and this is imperative for putting in your best every time to enhance the success rate with each try (as mentioned in the first step). To optimize the performance your brain will need the special fuel feed.
You might have observed that the most of the technical organizations possess a good cafeteria including espresso coffee, Red Bull, alike fuels to charge the body. However, here we are talking about somewhat different kind of fuel. This basically includes official and professional training processes, and other stuffs that add to the knowledge base of the developers. Developers are recommended to learn from the case studies of the earlier resolved tough projects, online reading and other stuff that accentuates learning in the team.
For instance, sharing the acumen of what you learned in your last sprint with your co-workers would be probably the best possible fuel to feed and enrich the brain. As the saying goes ”Knowledge increases by sharing”, by sharing your experience, you can help enhance the performance of everyone around you.
3. It’s The Time For Recovery
Doing something apart from the technical stuff for a while can rejuvenate your senses and make you fresh and relive. This is extremely important to ensure a superlative performance.
Relaxing is a must, and it can be done by taking part in some different activities like playing with your colleagues, going on a small walk, etc., and most importantly, a healthy night sleep is obviously conspicuous. A fresh mind will help you stay productive and work with an absolutely creative and intriguing approach.
As a sudden weather change, injuries and other such dynamic events can affect the athletic training strategies, similarly the there are certain factors that can impact the developer training as well. For instance, what if some new project with a predefined, fixed deadline arrives and all your team members get straggled randomly. This may cause bottlenecks in yours as well as your team’s performance.
However, it is also a known fact that practicing and considering all the challenges while training for the job can help you solve every question with utmost ease and precision. Therefore, like athletes when once get into the shape can easily handle all the bottlenecks, the developers possessing quality training can make better strives for enhanced performance even in the toughest circumstances.
