if you're going into a job interview just to get the job, you've already failed.

technical skills - necessary, but not sufficient to be a truly productive and effective software developers! 

so, what is the secret to being a better developer? what's that one missing thing?

It is interesting that you consider to be a better developer by being a better human being. I mean, it is different for any other professional?
I think that the "secret to be a better software developer" is by focusing on the problem and not on the technology or any specific solution, and to train yourself on the technologies you need to accomplish your job.
I agree that human relations are important, but this is true in all fields, so this is the basics not only on business relationships.

Someone recently asked me a question that I wasn't quite expecting: Why would you use a messaging server instead of just having the web server handle the request? Well... that's a good question, and one I had not articulated clearly, in the past!

If you've ever created a custom error in JavaScript, you may have had problems getting your stack trace to be clean. There's a simple fix for that in NodeJS, and I'll show you in this quick screencast.

"new" vs object literals and other creation patterns... does it matter? or, when does it matter? should you sacrifice readability for performance? does the performance of them really make a difference?

Remember that time you got really pissed off at someone else's stupid code, or bad documentation?
