Development Standards, Part 0.5 – People

Ok, I suppose you can’t apply standards to people and their personalities…  But you can try, can’t you?  I thought this article about personality traits of the best software developers was spot on.  In a nutshell, the best software developers are:

  1. Pessimistic in the short run, optimistic in the long run
  2. Angered at sloppy code
  3. Like to plan ahead
  4. Pay attention to detail

I like it.  Simple, short, to the point.
