I am Harshad Satra and I make your dream interfaces tangible.
I started my journey as a Junior Developer at Yellow Slice in 2013 after completing my graduation in B.Sc. Information Technology from Mumbai University. Today, after 7 years of lots of learning, growth, mistakes and motivation I am a Front end Developer with my Alma Mater, Yellow Slice.
What Does it Mean to be a Front End Developer?
As a front end developer, I bridge the gap between the Designer and Back-end Developers to deliver an amazing product for the User.
Though this is no cakewalk, it is an extremely fulfilling experience when a user is satisfied with the product.
One of my primary roles includes coordinating between the File Structure for the backend developer to understand it and work his magic while fulfilling all the guidelines of the designer to get the output as expected. All of this while ensuring that the user will see what is expected and everything loads seamlessly.
Learn & Share your Experiences
Yellow Slice has allowed me to learn from first-hand experiences and make my career a fulfilling experience. We have worked on many amazing projects, coming up with cool ideas and converting them into reality.
Never Stop Learning
With what I do, there is no end to learning. There is something new and challenging every day. Any resistance to learning and upskilling will stunt my and my agency’s growth.– Harshad Satra
Yellow Slice has played a major role in motivating me to be updated with the times and providing me with the necessary resources and training to keep my development game strong.
My Rules to Keep a Project Inline:
- Always start with a clean slate, don’t use the code from the old projects. However, I wouldn’t deny that they are also the best references.
- Always understand the design before beginning, ask questions to the designer and understand what his/her plans are.
- Create a GIT Repository as soon as you start a project. Version control for even imported projects is a great way to use previous versions even as you move forward.
- Plan your folder structure.
- Always Comment your code: You are not going to be the only one to work on it.
- Create a ReadMe File to explain the project and its structure or any other information you need to convey.
- Use debugging tools to keep your code in check, Inspect Element is your Friend.
- Make a plan to Sync with the Design and Development team.
