Hi Team
Hope you all had a good Diwali last week. It’s a great pleasure to address all
RapidQubers through this newsletter.
Art of Coding
You've probably heard of "Art of Living", but art of coding? Steve Jobs once said,
“Computer Science is a Liberal art”. Can coding be considered an art? Why not? We
are now at a point where programming is an integral part of many people’s jobs.
How do professional developers do it efficiently and differently from the rest?
Software development is to solve someone else’s problems and make their lives
easier. Observe your surroundings., on the way to work and on the way back home.
You will get multiple ideas about how to solve your client’s problems and
implement your code better with richer user experiences.
As our organisation embarks on “Agile methodology” for our development projects,
team members will be brainstorming potential solutions with our business
partners. A holistic perspective by our application developers will bring higher
dividends in our company's growth path.
Happy Coding!
