Brian Bi's answer to What are the top 10 pieces of career advice Brian Bi would give to future software engineers? - Quora
Develop empathy for both your fellow engineers and your users. This advice was given to me by my intern manager at Facebook. Every time you write code, put yourself in the shoes of someone else who will have to maintain it. Every time you implement a new feature, put yourself in the shoes of the average person who will use it. These skills will make you a better engineer, as you'll be better at working as part of a team, and the products you build will be more successful. Too many engineers don't understand this.
