Becoming a better developer (Part Deux)

Take time to learn about the business and your code base

A good way to learn about continuous changes in your code base is to pay attention during stand up. Everyone has something new that they have worked on and checked-in recently. Why not take some time out to aquaint yourself with changes people have made and then ask questions about things you don't understand. This way you are up-to-date on your code base and you will/may find it easier during refactorings.

It also forces you to understand how the business works and how it is changing.
