Programmer Worries – Amateurs worry about syntax…

I read a famous quote recently about photography:

“Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light… I just take pictures… ”  – Vernon Trent (attrib.)

It inspired me to write this about programming:

“Amateurs worry about syntax, professionals worry about deadlines, masters worry about durability. I just type until I run out of caffeine.” – David Johnson.

I also made some graphics to illustrate the point:

amateurs

pros

masters

I also made a nice printable version (PDF here).
