in thread how to become senior programmer?

Having joined both small and large companies as a "senior programmer" (or "senior developer"), you now know of two.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Sure, I wouldn't be surprised one bit. You are one of the five or ten monks here with that very special something. I may have misstated my thoughts, though. Once you get one position as a senior programmer at a respectable place, the second one should be easier. What I think is rare, as this guy has done, as well as you and probably several other monks here, is that he started as a lead after his second year in college, never having worked before. I would just guess that it is rare for an 18 year old who has never worked before to start as a senior programmer at IBM, say. Cheers.
