    • a computer program (i.e. code)

    • the procedures for using the code

    • the documentation which describes the reasons for creating it, describes the code, and describes how to use it.

    • data to run the code on to test all possibilities

But what is most important for you is the need to: "Know thyself" and you need to ask yourself

  • How do I approach problems?

  • How do I work with others?
