Really interesting article on the difference a ten-times-better programmer can make, plus some bogus Jeff Dean facts:
- Compilers don’t warn Jeff Dean. Jeff Dean warns compilers.
- Jeff Dean writes directly in binary. He then writes the source
code as documentation for other developers.
- When Jeff Dean has an ergonomic evaluation, it is for the protection of his keyboard.
- Jeff Dean was forced to invent asynchronous APIs one day when he optimized a function so that it returned before it was invoked.
