Read a lot of other people’s code. Even if you think they’re less experienced than you. You will learn different ways of thinking and find solutions you wouldn’t have done that way. For better or for worse. Also try to do support on a co-workers legacy code, just to see how they did things some months or even years ago. Best practices are constantly evolving, so it’s never to look at the reasons why they changed, or to check if they should’ve changed in the first place.
