Being a great programmer isn’t just knowing the technical details. It is understanding that programming is
an art form, a philosophy.
It is finding the best solution to problems that never stop changing.
It is understanding the user, and what that user needs, is not always what the user tells you they want.
It is the ability to achieve a Zen-like peace when a client asks you for that mythical "all encompassing
system" and you know how to manage the limited resources you have and still create and deliver a great
product they can use. See the visual version of my work or read the
