First, bad programmer.

And then, good programmer.

I'm quite agreeing the good part.

Are you sure you've got the links in the right order?  Grin

I agree with most of the stuff in the good programmers section... if you've got a steady salary and have time to experiment. Not good for Indies I wouldn't think.  Roll Eyes

I'm kinda agree with "Eager to fix what isn't broken". About experiment... well all of my projects are experiment and ready to blow someone's PC Grin

Another sign you're a bad programmer is that you spend hours and hours curating a massive list of points filled with cutesy jargon to explain in lavish details the ways in which you describe others as bad programmers.  It's all well and good to be able to vent your spleen at all the crappy code you might have to maintain in your day job, but if that's all you ever do, you're just a maintenance programmer, which means you're not hot shit yourself, or at best your job is still not making you the great programmer you aspire to be.  Great programmers are too busy creating awesome stuff to have any time to complain about other peoples code that's usually just irrelevant to them.

Yeah! especially when they're even not a programmer complaining.

I don't think of myself as a good programmer... and I tend to think of everyone else as a good programmer (there are those exceptions where I saw their code and was like "wtf!?"...) But based on that list I guess I fit a good programmer more than a bad programmer.

This really only applies to how much I care about a project though... I've rewritten code I care about multiple times, and other code that I didn't really care about I had a (just get it done) mentality.

'i' will never equal 'a'. It has to be "i < a" not <=.

In short, the matrix is just a random file opened with a Japanese charset.

Linked from the same site, this is also a nice page (if less entertaining Smiley):
http://www.indiangeek.net/wp-content/uploads/Programmer%20competency%20matrix.htm

Going by that I'm probably just above average. If the average is in middle there, that is (unfortunately I think the average programmer is probably more on the left side on that matrix).
Many developers think I'm a below average developer though, for example because I don't really like Spring and I think Groovy is an ugly mess of a language  persecutioncomplex Smiley

I don't really like Spring...
Then i'm below average too. And some (the better ones...) of my colleagues are too. Spring solves problems that nobody would have without it.

Spring had some nice bits, but most of it has been replaced by better things.  DI by Guice or JSR330.  DM by Aries.  JDBCTemplate by JDBI.  MVC by a pair of rotting donkey balls.  And so on.

I consider myself a competent software developer, but I was too lazy to read the articles. So I guess I should say "I don't care". It really was seldom that a programming related problem stopped any of my projects, usually it's another reason if they get nowhere.
