The SuiteScript Career – Habitual Learning

Last week I wrote about the qualities I’d look for when hiring a Junior Developer. One of those qualities was:

Habitual Learner

You make time every day to see, hear, or read something new in your chosen field.

The crucial piece there is to make learning habitual – to be intentional about scheduling time to actively seek out new material, and to fiercely defend that time from distractions.

Reading should be a large portion of that learning, and one of the most influential programming books of all time is The Pragmatic Programmer.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough for aspiring software developers seeking to lead an exceptional career.
