The Best Way to Learn Development Skills (While Getting Paid in the Process)
Michael Mangialardi

I love this approach. I’m a former tech trainer and tester. I will always be a geek. This approach is much like the best trainers do things — show one step in the process, have the group practice it, ask for questions/roadblocks, take a group break, repeat for a day/week.

If you ever need someone to beta test the things you build, let me know. I find the broken things. All of them. I may have retired from paid testing, but I will never retire from breaking stuff.

And if anyone else has read through this, know this: Testing is a great way to learn to code. Breaking and fixing apps gets you down into the code without having to know the whole kit and kaboodle at once.

Like what you read? Give Kathy Jacobs a round of applause.
