I ran across that post reading Alvin Ashcroft’s daily blog of links (Dew Drops). Every so often somebody posts something like this. I think the author does a nice job of summing things up. It’s a good reminder of the things you should be doing as a programmer, and a good motivator to focus on the areas you’ve been slacking in. Practice a lot. Lean from others. Just keep working at it. That really applies to just about everything out there.
