Top 5 Productivity Traits of Successful Developers

If you’re going to be a successful Ruby on Rails developer, you have to be productive. Fortunately, you can learn to be more productive by mimicking successful developers. Take a look at the top productivity traits of the successful developers and then learn how to use them in your own projects.

Pair Programming

A good Ruby on Rails developer doesn’t just work by himself. He also works in pairs. By working in pairs, developers learn how to stay on track to get the job done, no matter how big or how small the project is. Consider pairing up with a fellow programmer so you can become a better, more productive programmer.

Highly Organized

You can’t be productive unless you are organized. When you are organized, you can quickly find what you need, when you need it. It also makes it easier to prioritize your tasks. The best developers understand this, so they are highly organized. That helps them fly through their work.

Great Time Management Skills

Productivity and time management go hand in hand. You need to complete various tasks and meet your deadlines with each task. That means you need to know how much time to dedicate to each task, and then manage your time so you get it done by the deadline. The top developers have honed their time management skills so they only spend the desired amount of time on each task. That is why they meet their deadlines.

Proactive

You can’t be productive if you are reactive. The most successful Ruby on Rails developers take a proactive approach to web development. That helps them fix problems before they get out of hand. That, in turn, makes it easy for them to stay on task, which makes them highly productive.

Ability to Find the Simplest Solution

Overcomplicating the web development process cuts down on productivity. The most productive developers know how to find the easiest, fastest solutions for various problems. Then they implement them and move onto the next solution. This allows them to get more done in a shorter period of time.


You might not be productive by nature, but you can teach yourself these skills. Build on them slowly and you will become a more productive Ruby on Rails designer in no time at all. Then you can use that productivity to become successful.
