Skillcrush TV: 6 Things Every Awesome Developer Knows How to Do

Have you tapped into the single most important thing techies need to know to be successful?

It's not angularJS (although that's pretty hot right now – you should look it up), and it's not Git (also pretty important – you need that to get hired too). In fact, it's not even something you can find by opening a browser window.

For once, it really IS all in your head.

When you're a beginner in ANY field, self-doubt, worry, and feelings of inadequacy can sneak into your mind and mess with your performance. It's no different in tech. I go on and on about how important it is to change the way you think about challenges so you can work through obstacles instead of letting them beat you.

But it's not just beginners who have to think about head games. If you want to become a pro developer, you need to take a close look at the way you think about tech and problem-solving.

As important as hard skills are (like knowing HTML and learning JavaScript, for example), the developer mindset is what separates those who dream about a career in tech from those who DO IT. 

In this week's episode of SkillcrushTV, I give you the 6 tricks every successful web developer needs to know. So don't let your own head games slow you down. Find out how to tap into the mindset that all the most successful developers use to reach their goals.
