Development is not just an activity, it is a state of mind. In this episode we sit down with Colby Cook of Genuine (@wearegenuine) and talk about what it means to have a developer mindset. In our conversation we discuss what development has in common with construction, why approaching development as a series of steps is important and what you need to know about yourself as a developer.

Key Takeaways

  • Remember to approach development as a series of steps that build ontop of each other.
  • Be mindful of what problems you are trying to solve, only build to solve those problems.
  • Keep in mind who you are, what you know and what you don't know. Use your team to balance stengths and weaknesses.
