On Programming and Problem-Solving

In my experience, there are two types of developers each of which can be identified based on how they react to any given problem.

One type of developer will spend extraordinary energy seeking a solution, working to implement it, and attempting to understand said problem.

The second type of developer will throw up their hands, begin pinging every other developer-type they know for a solution, and ultimately care more about “making it work” rather than the solution itself.

Show me a programmer who is more like the former and I’ll show you a programmer who has what it takes for a successful career.
