Damien Katz: Signs You're a Crappy Programmer (and don't know it)

Damien Katz: Signs You're a Crappy Programmer (and don't know it): "You know those crappy programmers who don't know they are crappy? You know, they think they're pretty good, they spout off the same catch phrase rhetoric they've heard some guru say and they know lots of rules about the 'correct' way to do things? Yet their own work seems seriously lacking given all the expertise they supposedly have? You don't know any programmers like that? Come one, you know, the guys who are big on dogma but short on understanding. No, doesn't sound familiar?"

This is a good read, even if you don't agree with the examples used. The bottom line for coding is getting the job done in such a way that it can be maintained for years to come. It's that second part that always seems to be a victim of superior "koding skillz"
