Kaleem Manages His Habitual Duties This Way
Kaleem Mughal is a talented Magento Certified Developer who manages his tasks brilliantly. Below-mentioned is his one-day routine that shows his professional interests, how he does multi-tasking, a sneak peek into his personal life, and work duties.
Developers are night owls, it is a myth because Kaleem has proved it wrong. He wakes up early every day even if he winds up his work late. He even cooks breakfast for himself while watching Netflix. Cool right? People usually like to listen to audio news or read the newspaper while enjoying caffeine but Kaleem is a Netflix freak.
Kaleem is not only an avid Netflix user but he also has a passion for classical music. He says he not only listens to it but also sings sometimes. Though we have not yet caught him listening, now that we know, we are going to listen to one of his favorites for sure.
At noon, he checks his emails, messages, and other pending reminders. Later, he has to attend a meeting with his Senior Managers to discuss any project updates or whatever is next.
Later, he plans the tasks that demand 30 minutes from his schedule, and afterward, he’s off for lunch. During lunch, he likes to sit with his colleagues to have a healthy discussion on current affairs and sports.
After spending an hour there, comes back to his seat and immediately starts working. His strategy is to draw flow charts, graphs to analyze the current situation, and plan further solutions accordingly.
In the evening, he executes his planned solutions on the project and starts testing if it demands improvement, fixes, etc.
He waits for the client’s response after testing and, meanwhile, he takes a short break to treat himself to tea and candy.
Kaleem usually updates his task statuses at Trello or KanBan. After doing this, he plans his new tasks, inspects updates related to Magento, and discusses those with the team members and managers.
At 07:00 pm, he concludes his day by sending a task report to his client and manager and attends his client’s call, if necessary. The estimated call duration is 45 minutes during which he advises him on new solutions, current situation, prospects, and discusses his daily routines.
“Communication is my way to manage things. My priority is to discuss things with my team or client. It is essential to remove the gap between the developer and client.”
At 09:00 pm, he goes back home and gives some time to his family. He is truly a family-oriented guy.
At 11:00 pm, he prepares himself to attend sessions on Magento certification, and before sleeping, he interacts with the Magento community on Twitter. This is a must!
Is Magento a Reliable Career to Choose? We Asked Kaleem This!
According to him,
“Learning and working in Magento is lucrative, but its learning curve is quite steep and one can easily get overwhelmed.”
The market is lacking professional Magento Certified Developers, and everyone is on the hunt.
“I recommend that Magento certification demands some personal interest too. Without some interest, it becomes tougher to learn and lead it yourself.”
