Dutch Web Alliance:
Continuous Learning
Nov 13, 2015 @ 10:45:57

On the Dutch Web Alliance site today Stefan Koopmanschap makes a recommendation about something that can help make you a better developer and grow in your knowledge: continuous learning.

Education. In a fast-changing environment such as the web industry, education is the single most important thing to survive. [...] We need to stay up-to-date on those subjects to ensure we keep doing the right things in the right ways. It is impossible to keep your knowledge on everything up-to-date and still have enough time to work, so we need to make choices on which topics to focus on and how to learn. In this article I’ll go into some strategies and some ways to keep the knowledge of you and your team current.

He covers lots of good topics, including a brief summary of each point as he goes (including deciding if you want to be a generalist or specialist). He goes through several places to gain this kind of knowledge including:

  • Knowledge sessions
  • Trainings
  • Code kata
  • Code reviews
  • Mentoring

...and these are just some of the places. He also points out the value of learning something on your own every day, trying out something outside of your usual solutions and remembering that "no two challenges are the same".

It is with great pleasure that I announce that the PHP Classes site finally launched the premium services for PHP developers that use the site.

There's also several other services that are listed as "coming soon" to further enhance the site - customizable site design templates, new class wish lists, personalized bookmarks, etc. The cost for all of the premium services comes to $5 USD/month (with $15 USD due at a time because of restrictions on the payment gateway).
