Developer Handbook 2020 - Created for Apptension

An opinionated guide on how to become a professional Web/Mobile App Developer.



Developer Handbook 2020 License Maintenance


Overview

🔹 Developer Handbook 2020 🔹 was created to cover the most common technical questions and requirements appearing prior to job interviews, during onboarding or personal goals / career planning at our company - Apptension. We also like to call it a Technical Documentation of our company.

It contains a lot of subjective technical groups, opinionated technologies, vetted requirements and best practices we gathered for Web & Mobile Developers.

Enjoy reading! 🙇

  • Technical Stack – a summary of all topics, languages, frameworks, and libraries we use in production together with checklists of the most important concepts.
  • Technical Guide – a complete list of topics (libraries, frameworks, programming concepts/patterns) we follow and recommend to learn to progress in your career to become a better Web / Mobile App Developer.

Q&A

Do I need to know everything that’s under Regular (for instance) list to take a Regular position?

No, hiring a person is very subjective and will take in count things other than the technical knowledge. This is the guide of what we consider a Regular developer will face during their career path in the company. This is valid for any seniority level.

What’s the purpose of Onboarding?

We consider “Onboarding" the 2 weeks time where a developer will start working in our company. The list under this category is a guide of what skills you should learn/show during these first 2 weeks.

I have many years of experience and I’m considered Senior in another frontend stack, but I don’t know much about the company’s stack. Does it mean I will take a Junior position?

We know developers are very skilled when it comes to learning, and we’re sure a Senior frontend dev will catch up with our stack if he knows what to do. This is exactly what this guide is for :)

To get promoted from Junior to Regular, do I have to check all items in the Junior or Regular section?

A Regular developer should know almost everything (if not everything) from the Junior category and present the skills to learn what’s in the Regular category. In other words, we see that to move from Junior to Regular a developer needs to present a good amount of skills from both. And of course, with soft skills that are analysed case by case.

If I want to work for Apptension, what do I do?

Can I contribute to the list?

Yes, contribution is accepted in adding new content for the guide and questioning/correcting mistakes. Since this is a list of tech we use, the introduction of new items should come from the Apptension team. But feel free to fork and use it as your own learning guide!


Contribution

We are very open to contributions to extend or change the requirements based on your gut and experience. To contribute you can use a pull request which will be later validated by our technical team and added to the main docs.
