I like your thoughts and agree with a good portion of your comments. However, I wonder about this statement:

quote: <quote>There! I pose to you; there are no Great `programmers`, just great data analysts</quote>

Just because a person can analyze does not mean that person can program efficiently. To me, a great programmer is one who can take what s/he analyzes, flows it efficiently, and codes it following all of the rules that good coders use ie K.I.S.S., readability, efficiency, etc.

So, in my opinion there is a very big difference between a "programmer" and a "great programmer".

If we were arguing symantecs I could do the whole definition thing of "analyst" vs "programmer" but that would be pointless as it is very clear where you are going with this topic within the realms of the job description, if you will, of a programmer.

So, yes, analyzing is most important but a programmer is one who can code what s/he analyzes and a great programmer is one who does it as I stated above.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
