General Development "Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn - and the best way to learn is to do." For some reason, I love this short story.

I don't know, I would probably hire a candidate who could pull up code from when he was 8 in addition to whatever he was doing at the present. It would speak volumes on the meticulous nature of the person that they still have it. And it would show a life long passion.
