There’s an interesting article on Coding Horror that was posted yesterday. It describes the eight levels of programmers. Not all programmers are the same, not in their personalities, not in their coding styles or in their passion (or lack thereof) for their work.
The eight levels are as follows:
8. Dead Programmer
7. Successful Programmer
6. Famous Programmer
5. Working Programmer
4. Average Programmer
3. Amateur Programmer
2. Unknown Programmer
1. Bad Programmer
I’d like to think I’m at the Working Programmer stage – aspiring towards Famous and Successful Programmer.
