Ill logic

Sometimes I feel less like a programmer (or am I a developer?)

  • Developers have some knowledge of the domain and the business
  • Developers care about maintenance burden
  • Developers know that work methods are more important than technical chops
  • Programmers try to solve every problem by coding
  • Developers seek repeatability, programmers like one-off heroics
  • Programmers like complexity, developers favor simplicity
  • Developers care about users
  • Developers like to satisfy a need, programmers like to finish
  • Developers work, programmers play


Well, right now I could go either way. Mostly if I can’t get over this technical hurdle I’m going to go nuts and beg for a phone support job. By his definitions, usually I am a developer.
