What is Angular?
Who is an Angular developer?
There is no strict list of requirements – this is relevant for any modern direction of programming. Each company composes it according to their needs. On the one hand, this is a great advantage, since a person can identify pleasant / interesting technologies, level up in them and be in a “comfort zone”, performing part of the processes in a company that requires a suitable stack of knowledge.
On the other hand, newcomers get very lost – both at the start of their studies and when looking for their first job. If there was a clear list, everything would be clearer – the person would be required to go through the points and absorb all the knowledge as much as possible – whoever was more diligent would get all laurels. Therefore, it is important to level up and try to take advantage of the possible advantages of the situation.
Senior Angular developer
Senior is an experienced programmer who has seen the sights and is ready to handle any complexity. For him, it no longer matters whether it will be necessary to use an angular, a reagent or another tool – it is good in many technologies. He has the maximum responsibility and skills, he is kind of a superhero in the IT world. Such a web developer makes complex architectural decisions, can certainly assess the feasibility of using any technology and has a number of soft skills. It is difficult to overestimate the role of the last point – in addition to organizational work, he should be able to:
- maximally correctly estimate the time spent on a task;
- train beginners;
- understand the importance of adhering to agreements;
- be able to form a team and manage it.
This is not the whole list of soft skills that seniors use in their work almost daily. Of course, all this is individual, but few people want to work with a programmer who does not bring projects to completion or systematically violates the deadlines set by him. First of all, it is important to be able to write high-quality, easy-to-read and predictable code. You need to be able to break down functionality into components and combine them into other, more complex components.
To do this, you need to navigate the subject area. If you are working on an application for a physiotherapist, then you need to understand the process of diagnosis and treatment, and if you are making a program for selling train tickets, you need to understand the classification of trains, scheduling and routes. The client will always expect initiative and regular communication from an experienced developer. Therefore, ask questions, comment, proactively propose solutions to complex problems that the customer may not even suspect about, because they do not lie on the surface. For example, such as improving security, performance, updating to the latest versions of libraries, etc.
“Seniorism” depends on attention to detail, attitude to work, level of English and your communication skills more than how well you know Angular. In my opinion, senior developers should handle the development process on their own, have an active position (needless to say, you can’t do task A because you don’t have tools B), understand the advantages and disadvantages of implemented solutions (be an adult and understand the consequences of your actions). Finally, I think such dudes should perceive the project as their own business, for which they mortgaged a house in the bank. Thanks for reading. Wish you success in pumping your skills to a higher level!
