Awesome coding skills
I like to think of myself as more a "researcher" than an "engineer" - so, really changing my attitude towards coding and caring about the little things was a big deal for me.
Working on improving my skills
Learning to code well is a long and slow process. It is something that you have to develop over the years in a very deliberate fashion. There may be other ways of doing it but this is the only one that I have seen working.
