How to be a Ninja Developer - DevFest Punjab 2019

Slides with animations http://bit.ly/ninja-dev-pnb

All the developers used to write code then who is Ninja developer? Why do you consider a person as a Ninja developer? “Because he/she knows a lot of things about development”, you say. How do we know?

Ninja developers are those who just not write the code but do a lot of other activities along with writing code. Be it delivering talks or helping fellow developers over stack overflow and forums or writing blogs. I believe they do it as they believe in “Teach is to learn twice” and that’s how they do these all activities and get to meet a lot of people across the borders, learn from them and explore things together.

Also, Ninja developers are not those who are always on top of technologies, but they are the best developers in the market, who are always ready to work on any tasks assignment, no matter which technology it is, for them what matter is to solve the given problem.

Now in this talk, I have shared his decade long experience being into the IT industry. During the span of this period, he has written 150+ blogs, holding 100,000 reputation points over Stackoverflow, delivered 100+ talks, organized 100+ events, have developed 50+ applications and have managed 10+ products. He will be discussing sharing his experience, ninja practices and the things that we all developers should be doing along with managing regular job and coding.
