How to become a better programmer?
The below article is okay and I don't completely agree with everything he says but worthwhile...
1. It doesn’t matter how many years experience in carpentry you have had or how well you can design furniture or cabinetry if every time you try to cut wood you struggle with making the cuts.
Cutting wood is a base skill of carpentry, just like problem solving is the base skill of software development.
2. There is probably no more important skill in life than learning to learn.
3. When people ask me what I do all day, I mostly say “read things other people name and name things.”
You may have heard someone say there is a difference between a programmer with 10 years of experience and a programmer with 1 year of experience 10 times.
