I’m a boring programmer (and proud of it)
Dan Kim

I really like how Brennan Brown in the comments below mentioned “Programming is romanticized”, I couldn’t agree with this more. I am so tired of reading job postings wanting a “Javascript Ninja” and all the other pseudo titles associated with development. I feel like I missed the boat when programming became “cool”. Programmers are hard workers and I can only speak for myself when I say I would just like to be recognized for my hard work and dedication to my craft, rather than trying to be some weird “genius hacker”.

Like what you read? Give Joshua Coquelle a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
