Often times developers will look at their more prolific brethren (or sistren) and ask, "How do they do it?" How do they hack out so much open source code? Or crank out 5,000 LOC in a week on our latest project? How do they write 10 books a year? How are they so effective at what they do?
Is it possible to be like them? If you're willing to make the changes, it surely is, but you have to know what they are first. I've spent years reading the blogs and books of these people and watching them do their thing, and have noticed certain patterns in behavior and personality. This talk takes a look at 5 guiding principals that these developers seem to embrace and how they make them more effective developers.
