The Passionate Programmers Manifesto
The other day I came accross a story by Peter Wright about how he had recently quit his job, and left the world of Microsoft to code Ruby, Python and Perl on a Mac. It was a great story and well written. I think what hits home the most is what he calls 'day-coders' These are the drones that somehow managed to work their way into a programming posistion, but have no drive to do more than the bare minimum. I've experienced a lot of this lately.
Anyway, I like this story so much I added his feed to my google homepage, and noticed his latest article, the Passionate Programmers Manifesto. I really enjoyed it and thought you might too.
