My adventure as a Software Engineer continues..,

What little habits made you a better software engineer?

I remember when I used to do this to a lesser extent. need to start it up again!

Answer by Jeff Nelson:

One habit I've clung to is writing small prototypes when I'm trying to learn new concepts.

For example, I'll sit down with a book or a web page, and over the course of a few hours, write 30 or 40 programs all of them only a few dozen lines long.  Each program intended to demonstrate some simple concept.

This prototyping makes it very easy to try out many concepts in a short period of time.

    Solving new problems could require different design patterns as part of the solution. Learning new design patterns teaches you new concepts of the programming language or stack.
