I've been working on a series of articles about mainframe migrations. My next post upcoming will be talking about source code translation tools. It got me to wondering, what is a good programmer?
I decided that the best way to figure out what makes a good programmer is to ask those who have a history of working with programmers.
I've been playing around with Google Docs and this seemed to be another solid opportunity to leverage some new Google Docs features, specifically Google Forms. I know this particular one is a little annoying but Google Forms didn't really give me many options for entering these data so I apologize for that.
I really appreciate your taking the time to read my blog and to help me with my research. So, without further ado, here is the What Makes a Good Programmer survey.
OK, maybe a little ado. Be sure to read and follow the instructions. They're pretty easy and, I think, relatively clever little recursive instructions to get a lot of responses. Thanks again for your help with my informal study.
If you've already taken the survey, I've published the results. Please don't look at the results of the "What Really Makes a Good Programmer" survey until you've completed it.
