Shani added me to his tagged list, so I'll try to answer this question. As an introduction to the answer I have already defined what a good developer in my point of view is.

Characteristics of a good programmer

29 ביולי 2007

I tried to think about the most 5 important characters, in my point of view, which can describe a good programmer and here they are: The ability and the desire to learn new things by yourself.

Some changes in my life

15 ביולי 2007

After 7 years I left my job. At my previous workplace I got my first qualified as a new programmer, after a while I became a senior developer. At the last two years I served as a team leader. I found good friends in my last workspace, and I'm sure that this friendship will last years ahead. These days I'm finishing my B.Sc in computer science. I'm entering a new phase in my life, so I have decided to take a short vacation to Italy (You can take a look at some pictures here). And now I'm looking for a...
