It is essential to always test your code before moving on. This is a mistake I encountered last year, and something I am revisiting this year. I need to look at what I’m writing and check for errors constantly. When I write code I tend to type quite fast and this incurs a lot of syntax errors. Next time I code for our project I want to make sure I do not have errors in my code.
Some of my code is very scattered and excessive. One thing I learned from last year is that: quality over quantity. Whenever I am writing a line of code, I like to go onto w3schools or codeacademy to see how I can make my code cleaner and concise. When writing a lot of lines of code, it is essential to write efficient code.
Write, Read, Test, Repeat
Constantly testing code is crucial in producing great code. I need to make sure that I always test my code before moving onto a new line of code. This is a mistake I find myself revisiting when I was writing code on codeacademy. I will make sure to be more precise when I code my project’s actual app.
