Everybody Wants A Developer Ninja/King/Expert/….
There are a million words to describe a qualified developer. The most critical thing all companies want to avoid is a developer who will drag their feet or simply doesn’t know how to program efficiently. If you are a developer and you can’t program efficiently and keep churning out crappy code, don’t be too hard on yourself, just realize that the key aspect that separates the “developer geniuses” from the rest is that they are constantly learning, everyone else just sucks at life.
Granted, talent is important. If you aren’t the most logical (or intelligent) person on the block, you may want to try another profession and leverage your strengths. However if you are a curious individual, programming may be the profession for you. Best of all, developer salaries are rising quickly. Every company I know is looking to hire developers. Yes, you need experience. Don’t have experience? Sharpen those swords ninja!! Practice makes perfect so start building the “next hot app” and even if it doesn’t work out, you’ll at least improve your programming skills.
