Let's talk programming...or anything really

Published on Nov 09, 2019


Key ideas that I got from the book The Passionate Programmer: Creating a Remarkable Career in Software Development (Pragmatic Life):

  • Contribute to OS
  • The only way to stand out is truly to be outstanding
    • Remarkable != Better than others but to be significantly better
    • Just being is not good enough, doing is [I don't recall this one be very well]
  • Make the hang
  • Explain yor NOs
  • Your shiny new skill is already obsolete
  • Think ahead of time
  • Schedule time to learn bleeding edge Tech
  • Focus on the process, enjoy it
  • Watch the ALPHA geeks / Become an ALPHA geek - or make the Hang
  • Review yourself
  • South Indian Monkey Trap
  • Make better today than yesterday: Small amounts of better
