Ask DZ: What You Wish You Had Known 2 Years Ago

At TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon, New Relic asked developers what they wished they'd known two years ago. Answers included:

  • "It's easier than you think."
  • "You're going to test everything."
  • "The power of cloud APIs."
  • "I wish I'd known how much easier it would get…with things like GitHub and social code-sharing."
  • "The things I knew two years ago aren't relevant anymore."
  • "I wish I knew how to code two years ago."
This got us wondering: what one piece of coding advice do you most wish you could pass on to the 2010 version of you? Were you a fresh-faced beginner, back in those bygone days? Is there a language you wish you'd known, or a line of code that would've made your life simpler? Hop in the DeLorean and save yourself some trouble in the comments.
