Life of a Software Developer in a Company and how to face pressure at Work


Here, I will discuss about the life of a software developer in a company and how to face pressure at work effectively.


As I've been a software developer I wanted to share some thoughts to help  overcome the dullness and the pressure of working in company.

A software developer is a person who uses his or her skill to provide a software application to make the work effective and manageable. I have been in the industry for 2+ years. While delivering the application to the client, the developer feels self-satisfied and proud that he has contributed to their  welfare. But actually a developer's life becomes boring and dull, as he works a lot within a deadline. He make sure that all the functionalities work properly, tests his application a lot, and if any change request comes, he has to revise his code and again re-work it. Working from home is common for developers.

So, how to enjoy being a software developer?

Always try to share knowledge and read the blogs as you will be able to know the things that you can do. As before, I didn't know the String.Format() concepts, but my friend shared the String.Format() concept and its uses. So, I got to know where to use it, and now I am using it without surfing its concept on the internet.

Work effectively, as I mentioned before without knowledg of the concept you cannot work. If you do not know how to sort the Data View Columns , you will have to surf and learn how to sort and have to be sure that it can work. After that only you can read the syntax and can apply in the code, which will take 20 min. But if you know the concept, you will need 5 min to see the syntax and merge it in your code, so you can finish the task quickly and will not be stressed.

At last join the communities like dotnetfunda and many other for continuous updates, articles. posts, forums etc. so you can learn a lot and you can share your thoughts and codes. In childhood parents and teachers used to say that if you write the contents, you will remember it over a long span of time when compared to reading, so make use of pen and paper. If the tasks or work comes, discuss with the seniors or managers that the task will take a specific time. I have seen that without discussing there are many misunderstanding, so discussion plays a vital role.
