What Is A Professional Programmer?

Here is a great entry from Sarah George called "What Is A Professional Programmer?", here is what you'll read:
  • The Meaning of "Professional"
  • Trustworthiness
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Updating Skills
  • Minimizing Risks
  • Accountability
Some excerpts:
Keeping your code simple and well styled is another commonly overlooked way to manage risks
Documentation at first seems like a programmer-specific concern until you consider how many people require documentation in a serious project
Respecting the people you work with, and your clients, enough to really listen to them is a critical part of communication.
Happy reading !
