I really liked this article "How to be a great developer". https://the-pastry-box-project.net/ed-finkler/2014-january-6
"Make the community around you better. You don’t need to go to some Magic City of Tech Genius to do important work.”
"Your choices of technology and technique matter, but only so far as they serve what you make with them. As a musician, I ran into tons of people who had great gear and loved to argue about equipment, but barely ever finished a song.”
"Never assume you know why a decision was made unless you were in the room when it was made.”
"Always keep two groups in mind: the users and the rest of your team. They are the ones affected by the decisions you make.”
"Reserve your loyalty for people. Not brands. Not companies. Not technologies."
