A few weeks ago, Sandra Ordonez published this piece on the PBS MediaShift blog about how to get programmers to stop hating you: http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2012/03/7-ways-to-get-programmers-to-stop-hating-you073.html

I was inspired to write a response, and they were kind enough to publish it! Read "7 Ways To Be The Programmer No One Hates." http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2012/04/7-ways-to-be-the-programmer-no-one-hates107.html

Thanks, +Dan Gravell, and that's a very good point. All of the tips in my post won't get you very far if you're not actually doing quality work - just being a friendly person and a good communicator is definitely not enough.

Love a good bargain as much as Jean Teasdale? Betcha you don't! For example, I don't call the third day of the week Tuesday anymore—I call it Doublecouponday!

Thanks to +John Argentiero's songwriting (and video editing chops), the world can now know me as the sweatpants-wearing couch potato that I really am. My Country Tis of Me - Das Binky

Douglas Rushkoff says to understand a world increasingly run by programs and fill a desperate need for code-literate workers, we should be learning computer coding along with our arithmetic
