Twelve Tips to Master Programming Faster →
Two years ago, in December 2007, I decided to become a great programmer. Before then, I had probably spent under 1,000 hours “coding”. From 1996 to 2007, age 12 to age 23, I spent around 1,000 hours “coding” simple things like websites, MSDOS bat scripts, simple php functions, and “hello world” type programs for an Introduction to Computer Science class. ...

The romantic image of an über-programmer is someone who fires up Emacs, types like a machine gun, and delivers a flawless final product from scratch. A more accurate image would be someone who stares quietly into space for a few minutes and then says “Hmm. I think I’ve seen something like this before.”

There’s little question that pro athletes do well with the ladies. But one thing that I’ve never really completely understood is why a disproportionate amount of hot and/or famous women seem to find their way into relationships with pro hockey players.
