Like many human endeavors, being a developer has a bit of a Freemason-like culture attached to it. It is subject to emotional overreach, irrational arguments, and unfounded, yet long perpetuated, myths. These myths can, if you’re not careful, set you up with false and unrealistic expectations and preconceptions. They attempt to dictate what you need to know—and, sometimes, who you need to be—to be considered a real developer.
It’s difficult enough to know what it takes to make the grade as a developer. Confronted with these myths, the journey can be almost as difficult as deciphering. http://goo.gl/TqTVMH
