Top Tens for Developers
In this article, we'll have a look at some statistics. In particular, I'd like to present you with the most discussed Kentico topics, terms developers search for, and the questions they ask.
Before I get to the interesting data, I'd like to shed some light on why I'm writing this article. Looking at the support tickets our engineers have to resolve every day, we see that most of the topics keep repeating over time. Often, we receive the exact same questions, even from people working for the same company. In addition to this, frequently, these questions are elementary level and the answers are easily accessible in documentation. This indicates that people do not share information ideally – on a global scale but also on a company-level, e.g. senior devs do not help their younger colleagues as would be appropriate. Also, all communication with our support department (firstname.lastname@example.org) remains private and cannot be reused by a public audience. Therefore, I'd like to encourage you to use public channels whenever possible.
To make it easier for new Kentico devs, here's a summary of all possible means of self-help and help in general:
- Written materials:
- API Changes tool - the ultimate weapon when performing upgrades
- KInspector - a health, performance, and security auditing tool (open source)
- Online communities:
And now for the fun part...
