Software developers, in my experience, tend to be of a certain type. Often a bit pedantic and with a tendency to stick with doing a task the same way. It’s a hazard of the job. When every detail, even the smallest semi-colon (and in some languages whitespace) can make a big difference.

For a SOHO Developer these characteristics bring their own challenges. It can be all too easy to get stuck in your own vision of how a plugin or template should work.

When working as an in-house developer you will have colleagues to bounce ideas off. If you have an idea, talking it over with someone can enhance it, or stop you making a less than optimal design decision.

A SOHO Developer does not have this option.

So the next time you have someone review your plugin or a template, see it as a positive result. Because it could just make you think in another direction and make your product better for it.

Do you do code reviews? Are you a SOHO developer? If so, who with or how do you bounce ideas around? I would love to have your feedback so why not leave me a comment.
