Coders at work

I am reading this book , it's really a great book, one of the best IT books I have ever read... probably because it's not so much about Computers, but about Computer People...

It shows how all these great coders, excellent at what they have done, have really very different personalities, educational backgrounds and lifestyles.

So far a common denominator of all these great minds is:
- learn to write clean, readable, well documented code
- learn to read other people code

Coding seems to be more a matter of literacy and communication than a matter of purely technical skills.

Here a great video on the Netscape developers, including Jamie Zawinsky
