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.
