And my advice you young programmers to go along with this fine article [hint, hint] is to find the good blogs, the ones by veteran programmers AND THEN from those, find the ones that have comments from other veteran programmers. Now, you have a blog on programming that is worth reading. And that means from blog post to the last comment each day for a week, or more. Just because the original post is more than 24 hours old, it does not mean the discussion is over. And just because a blog post is a year old, does not mean that the advice is no longer valid. Good advice, real good advice, is timeless.
update: I added a comment to the blog. I am interested in your comments on my comment.
It is awaiting approval my the moderators. I signed it Chaim and it is titled Know The General and Learn the Specifics.
