Hi Sean sir, I have been in web development for a ~1 year and I build things using angular mostly. My question is how do I judge my work? Like there is no "supervisor" kind of person where I work, I just learn stuff and build things as per requirements. Applications work as they are expected to but I am not sure how to verify if I am doing things "the right way" or The app I built is as good as I think it is😛 . Thanks for your time!

Hi Sean, First Thank you for AMA, I'm always asked to do as fast as possible and ship it, now matter what you do behind the scene. Do not care about performance and more level details.
So I usually take a little longer time than I could, but do it a little more careful, tries to do a little better.
Want to ask, why shipping is more important than projects behind the scene. How you'd come over to it, if similar situation arises.
