And while we are on the collective soap-box, I am just put another one
out there: Anyone who says they are looking for a "rockstar"
programmer can just forget about ever hearing from me. I realize that
this may seem to be kinda cute, from the surface. But, I'm frankly
insulted by the notion that to in order to be highly skilled software
engineer: one has to be "cool" enough (hence, said engineer would be
deemed a "rockstar").
Just as I lament the fact that the media has reduced title of "hacker"
to that of a criminal. It angers me to see the (what I believe to be
a rather beautiful) craft of software engineering be reduced to that
of some lame pop icon.
Anybody with me on this one?
