Good developers are like librarians


I read an interesting post from Chris Heilmann this evening on how you can be a better developer by being cleverly lazy. I especially liked this paragraph from his post:

Librarians are great people. Instead of knowing everything that is in the library they know exactly where to find the information to solve a problem. As a cleverly lazy developer you should do the same.

As a developer, you and I should know where to find the best solutions and how to use them. Be up-to-date with what’s happening in our domains and smartly solve our problems.

If you are developing web applications, you should read chris’s blog, you will find it interesting.

  • Many students are pleased to know that there are many things that you can do in order to obtain student aid. There are many things that even others can do for you so that you have the student aid that you need to make it through to the end of your college career. There are numerous ways that you may obtain the student aid that you need to get the education that you need. There are many resources that you may utilize in order to help you with your efforts. It is just a matter of knowing what those resources are, and which are going to be most feasible for you. Even with seeking out student aid, knowledge is certainly going to be key. Once you begin to compile all the resources that are available, it is time to do what you can to give your best effort to each effort. Although there are so many ways that students receive the student aid to see to it that they obtain the desired college education, there are approaches that seem to be most common.
    1. A way that most students receive student aid is by applying to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, most commonly known as FAFSA. FAFSA is a governmental resource that helps those that qualify with the financial aid that they need in order to attend college. This is typically done through grants and loans. A student may receive either a grant or loan to cover their expenses, or any combination of the two.

    2. Another way that a student is able to receive the student aid that they need to go to college is through scholarships. Those students that receive scholarships most commonly say that they receive these scholarships automatically through the college that they attend. This is usually do to merit that they have earned in regards to their high school academic or sports records. There are others that obtain scholarships that they have applied to. Most scholarships have a particular focus as to who qualifies; however, there are many scholarships out there. There is a scholarship out there to reflect every background and every academic focus. Most times, applying for a scholarship is a matter of writing an essay, and/or submitting some type of proof that you meet the general qualifications.

    3. Then there is a, some would say, more "traditional" approach to obtaining the student aid that you need for college. There are those that raise the student aid that they need. That's right, they start their own fund. They ask people that they know to help them by giving them the money that they need to cover their college costs. There are those that also have others raise money for them, as well.
