Development Director of our company, Steve has helped me write my personal development goals for myself and my company. We have a lot of the same questions in common and I’m always eager to learn more about what it is that Steve has been taught by his mentor, a development director for a previous startup and a CEO of two other companies.
Steve, the creator of the development director interview, was the founder of a company called Blue Moon, where he developed an app called Blue Moon Chat, which is a free text communication app for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry. His company created the app for free to help developers communicate with other developers. Steve has been a developer himself for well over a decade and has been with Blue Moon for a little over two years.
Steve has a reputation as a very open person and is very open about the fact that he loves to code. One thing he seems to have a problem with is that he sometimes forgets to update his code, which can mean his code is just sitting there with a lot of bugs. Another thing we often see is that Steve does not code as efficiently as we would like. He seems to take longer and longer to create a new feature.
Steve is one of the few developers I know who is a perfectionist. There are people who are willing to work just as hard and in the same amount of time to get it just right but Steve seems to have that attitude. It’s not just because he’s a perfectionist, it’s just that he has the mindset that he has to be the best at what he does. This attitude has been present in Blue Moon’s development for a long time.
The fact is, a lot of creators are just not great at how to make stuff look like it’s supposed to be.
Its a really good question, Steve, and one that I think is very good at figuring out. I could be wrong though, so I’ll leave it up to you to do your own research.
I think the question is valid and I can answer it. Ive been on more than one development team and I can say that no matter how good you are, there are always things that are just wrong about you. The best developers are the ones who can look at a problem from multiple perspectives and come up with a better solution.
But I can’t say that. Yes I do. I don’t have any stats on the development team I work on, but the developers I work with are extremely good at what they do. When I started, I thought I could learn about how to do everything myself. But then I realized that I was just good at one thing and not good at anything else. I feel that I have to be able to do everything I can to ensure that our game is great.
