I was surfing stackexchange.com, and this is what I got:
“Don’t waste time on understanding the language. Just find a great IDE with good autocomplete. Ask lots of SO questions. It’s all anyone needs.”
I was like really. Does anyone who wants to be a great developer think this way. I can’t be sure if this person wasn’t making a joke. What do you think about this?
