|I am currently in my ~8 year as a developer, doing my Masters degree while working as a part time developer.
That said i find it quite hard to keep improving, i know a lot of people that are better than me but i seem to be unable to really learn from them.
What i found out is that i rarely take the time to lern something in depth because i mostly learn stuff to use it and tutorials seem to move at a way to slow pace, so i mostly skip them.|
As an axample, i started out with C/C++ development but am unable to keep up with the new standards. I see people write really nice code but whenever i sit down i just keep reusing what i know. The same goes for architecture, i have been building stuff for a long time but other people (with not that much experience) tend to be way better at abstracting stuff or architectual design than i am.
How do you guys keep lerning new stuff? Any techniques or tips?
