What if you, as a developer had to sell your code?
I’m not talking about Developers building a funnel and doing trade shows. But what if the last step in a customer purchasing your software was for the Developer to sell it to them, in essence, the developer was the Closer for the deal.
What would change in not only how you wrote it but how you designed it?
Would you put in all that “future proofing” and extensions that might never get used?
Would you spend more time in designing the UX to make it easier to use?
Would you change the information you logged to a file? Would you log to a file?
Would you handle third-party API Exceptions more gracefully?
What would you do?
Now ask yourself – why aren’t you doing that now and what is stopping you?
