( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I dislike the kind of programmer who always wants to show off his/her everyone-else-is-an-idiot type of smart, but never takes any responsibility even for the smallest bugs he/she has introduced. One of my friends in the same company shared with me his observation: "Those people usually end up on projects that are small enough for one person".

  • They cannot lead, as no one want to be perceived as an idiot (remember that he perceives everyone else as an idiot, and he is the god).
  • You don't want them to be under your leadership, as they will drive everyone else on the team nuts and want to quit.
  • You don't want his help, as he only helps to destroy your day.
  • You don't want to help him, as I can guarantee you that, if anything goes wrong later, it is your "stupid" ideas will be blamed.
  • ...

I don't want to be the type of programmer who is indifferent to bugs and issues of the applications that they support. They write down on paper the procedures how to handle the troubles, so that they can follow the procedures the next time when they run into the same troubles, but usually they don't apply long term fixes. Why? many reasons: don't want to take risk; want to take it easy; or they are not empowered to do so (in which case, I don't blame them).

How about you?
