I used to be convinced that Google knew everything. No matter what I searched for, thousands of pages would jump up to greet me, all trying their hardest to answer my question. But that was before I became a coder. Thanks to xkcd for saying it so well:
I took one look at this comic and I knew I was DenverCoder9. When hunting down the answer to my question, nothing and no one will stand in my way. Endless coding forums, reference websites, and hours of trial-and-error will eventually bring me to the conclusion. But lets be honest — how many times did I go back to those forums and post the solutions I found? How often did I update the documentation to clarify the section I was researching? Never. So maybe it’s time to fix that.
No, I’m not from Denver and the number 9 has no special significance to me, but I know I am DenverCoder9. And this time I’m going to record what I found for the people of the future.
Are you DenverCoder9 too?
