7 Tips our Developers recommend to Newbie Devs
Today is World Youth Skills Day so we want to celebrate young people’s access to training and career opportunities by providing some inspiration for anyone interested in working in tech.
We asked our developers, product managers and even our CEO about the resources that sparked their interest in tech and helped to hone their skills; here are their recommendations.
If you have 30 minutes a day, try completing a few exercises on FreeCodeCamp. This is a great way to learn to code in bitesize amounts of time.
A good starting point are the Hello World courses on Codecademy, which helps with learning tooling set-up and understanding how things work in that language. You can also test your knowledge by modifying the code and adding other statements.
Get stuck into this
A slightly more advanced course for learning frontend development is ToDoMVC, which also has a lot of other examples for each tech stack.
Learning by doing is the best method which this C# Unity Game 3D course from gamedev.tv definitely will help you to do so.
Silicon Valley (HBO)
our co-founder, Matthias Allmendinger, recommends this series as it sparked the entrepreneurial spirit that brought Taxdoo to life.
Sushi. Ok, just kidding. Although our developers do love a good Bento box, feel free to pick your favourite brain food for learning to code. Happy hacking doesn’t happen on an empty stomach!
We hope this list was helpful! It is, of course, by no means complete- what else would you recommend for budding developers

EI in Software Engineering | How to Improve Code Quality
Software engineering is all about coding. Right? Wrong. Well, just a little bit at least. Software engineering is way more than writing lines of code. Problem-solving, understanding complex business systems, specifying the scope of project implementation, defining contracts between clients and customers, coordination (for resource allocation, deployments, interlinked pieces of work), prioritizing, communication between colleagues […]

Domain-Driven Design: what is it and how does Taxdoo thrive with it?
What is Domain-Driven Design and why is it helpful? Domain Driven Design (DDD) is an approach to software development, made popular by Eric Evans’ book, Domain Driven Design, published in 2003. It still receives a lot of attention today and is a highly respected tool in a lot of architects’ toolboxes. Why? Quite simply, DDD […]
