Summary

This chapter explored the attributes that make up the “programmer way.” In my experience, it seems as though programmers tend to fit the same profile. For example, they often work in darkened offices that lack windows and subsist on soft drinks.

You don’t have to become a geek to be a good programmer. Just concentrate on the approach discussed in this chapter. Try to develop a good style by striving to write concise code with a lot of comments and avoid magic numbers and repeated code. Realize, too, that your programming style should continually improve. The best programmers in the world know they have room to improve further.
