Just accepted a senior developer position at a new company!

I've been a senior for 6 months and a developer for 2 years. Feels like I'm a bit early.

Any tips?


@hjfitz Measure twice, cut once. => Plan carefully and analyze the issue and implications prior to writing code.

Provide extra buffer in your time estimates. The devil is in the details.

Leave no code as a mystery to yourself. Understand all of it. It is that which you don't understand now which becomes a nightmare later.
