Tips to Improve Programming Skill and Become a Better Android Programmer or Developer
If you know basic concepts of Java and spend a few days with XML, then you are ready to create some basic Android apps. Becoming a android developer is easy, to become a successful one the developer requires passion, hard work, dedication and knowledge to move in the right direction. There is no shortcut for achieving success overnight so be patient try to understand the systems well whether they’re big or small. But if you are ready to put the efforts and maintain consistency, you can definitely become a successful developer.
1. Follow the latest trends
There is something new to learn every day, knowing the latest trends in the Android App Development will keep up you with what users actually expect about the functionality and features of an app today. These technological advancements will help you in envision the multiple options for customers and also helps you in knowing the leading ideas for mobile app development.
2. Start small but Expand slowly
For success, there is no shortcut. You need to work hard and smart. So, in order to build a successful app, the app developer needs to understand the requirement and break down epic or complicated issues or features into simple and separate modules. This helps in easy understanding and quick development.
Don’t get devastated by the initial size or intricacy of the project. Everything can be settled once you are on the right track. Start with small, and then expand slowly.
3. Try to learn about designs
This one of the key skill most of the developers lack. The developer expertise can be defined or evaluated by the designs. And also it is the key element to client review your work. UI and UX play a crucial role in the success of the Android app as well as a Web app. The good developer must be proficient in designing or good evaluator of the designs. The developer can learn the designing by giving some time for learning user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design to become a successful developer.
4. Attend meetups, be social, and interact with other developers
There is a line, “When you leave your comfort zone and start exploring you’ll become, more potential and knowledgeable person than you ever imagined.” Start interacting with developers to share similar interest, attend meet-ups and social gatherings, online communities, groups to learn a lot of things.
5. Believe in your idea
The ideas of successful companies are once underestimated or criticized. You should not get down or fall down for wrong judgments or criticism. Be strong and believe in your that is the key to success. Do your research and evaluate, is your idea is going to add the value? How much? For an autonomous developer, an app idea should totally revolutionary or the simplest one with added value. Regulations are sometimes impediments for the success of app so before launching the app regulate the things and think about what you are willing to invest.
6. Never stop reading and learning something new
The day you stop reading, your learning will be halted there. To become a good developer, you should read as much as you can to nurture your skills. Read the excellent code of more experienced developers on various sources. GitHub is a great place for exploring the new content and skills, contribute as much as you can. You must explore other open-source apps and libraries that helps in discovering lots of coding technologies and implementation which you never ever thought in your mind.
7. Consider learning more languages
Do not stick to the single program language for every solution, The industry is updating continuously with new technologies that help in delivering perfect solutions through the app in fewer efforts and quick time. You should keep yourself updated with what is happening in the industry rather than confining your thinking to the Android space. This will open up your aspect, inspire you to acquire new ideas, and help you in upgrading programming skills.
8. Don’t give up so easily
As I mentioned above, There is no shortcut for success, you should be patient and evaluate continuously to make your product or solution fit for the needs of customers or users. The most successful and popular applications are not built overnight. So, be a patient and adapt the changes and learn from your mistakes, get feedback and try new things to resolve the problem.
9. Be your own judge
You should be confident and judge your work before someone does, so be the first one to criticize your work and take your critics as your helping hand. Learn from your mistakes and try to resolve problems and make your app operation easier for users who have installed it. Why should someone install your app? Should be the first question that arises in your mind as an Android developer.
10. Be passionate
If you’re a strong believer and passionate about your work, nothing stops you achieving success. It is very easy and simple to work on a product if you believe and passionate about it and that will give good results. Once you have analyzed a problem and a feasible solution, start convincing yourself you can make it. If you find your passion and determination you’ll be more likely to create something really special.
The developer should remove the “bugs” during development in case wise and this helps to troubleshoot the bigger problem by minimizing the flaws in the application. Identifying or locating the bugs is not an easy task. You will learn it by experience and showing interesting in evaluating the own code instead of the QA team.
Well versed with various types of testing(Black, White, Integration) will be a great advantage for the developer. And, testing the application from a different perspective also an indeed requirement of the developer.Testing helps the developer in understanding or imaging the broad picture of an application or a system.
The Internet has become a major source for acquiring the knowledge for any field, for acquiring good programming skills there are abundant sources like youtube, GitHub, and other open source communities. Be an active member of those groups and participate in activities to grab news skills and product ideas.
