  • All of the good programmers I've worked with can easily work with most languages. Not only do they pick up the syntax, but they read the right stuff or whatever they do to know the wisdom of using it.

    The bad programmers only learn enough to solve their problem, rather than learning to be able to solve future problems they don't have yet.
