I don't know about you but after all this years that I'm into programming (18 year already) I'm still hesitate to call myself good programmer. I have some knowledge and experience but am I really good ?
This question really often return when you look around in net. You founding another awesome looking project that somebody done. In my case is even worse because most of the time it's also done a lot quicker ( I'm 7 years stuck in the same project). Always then I feel a little bit down because there coming other questions like: what you done in all this time, what you achieved and are you really good.
So far I start to thinking that we are in time when a lot of people want to show of their skills and show how better they are than others. I'm sometimes have pity for them when they doing that.
Recently I was asked if one of my friend is better programmer than me and my answer was yes. And the more I think about it's great. By simple fact that I know that there are better people I know I have a lot of new possibilities in front of me. I still can be better than I'm right now.
So in the end who cares if I'm called good programmer. I'm just trying my best in programming and I think this is great because there is so much new interesting things to be discovered.
