A field guide to developers

From Joel Spolsky:

"The world of programming is very just and very strictly ordered and a heck of a lot of people go into programming in the first place because they prefer to spend their time in a just, orderly place, a strict meritocracy where you can win any debate simply by being right."

"Nothing is more satisfying than winning an argument on its technical merits even when you should have lost it on political merits."

For me, feasting and having a sexual pleasure are the two most satisfying things on earth.
