Good programmers don’t all look alike

A lot of people think that the best programmers have the same attributes, like…

  • They keep odd hours, working well into the early morning hours.
  • They use a lot of fancy programming words even when they are speaking to non-programmers.
  • They eat nothing but pizza.

You get the idea.

But we need to get away from these stereotypes. I propose a different set of attributes:

  • They deliver what they promised, and it works.
  • They communicate effectively with users and stakeholders at all levels.
  • They have integrity.

Don’t look at superficial stereotypical attributes when hiring a freelance programmer. Instead focus on the attributes that mean something for your business.

What the critics are saying...

From my experience with Avonelle, she can be relied on to deliver whatever she promises--always on time and for the quoted cost. She'll ask the right questions to make sure that what she delivers truly meets the business need. Her expertise has been invaluable. All that at a very reasonable rate!
