in reply to Going back in time...

Learning to program was always easy and pure fun to me.
However, I would certainly be better if perlmonks would have existed this time, and I would have read more source code of others this way.
Be it perl or anything else.

There's a question of me:
What makes you a good programmer ?

  • No bugs ?
  • Code easy to read ?
  • Small memory print ?
  • Fast code ?
  • Programming fast ?
  • Code Easy to maintain ?
  • Well written documentation ?
  • Reusable sources ?

There should be more possiblities, but even the questions above are contradicting.

I personally try to write as much reusable code as I can,
I believe this way you cover most of the points above.
