I think heroes exist in every profession.
Mostly, because a lot of people don't really care about their work or are just very bad at it.

If you like programming, learn some new tricks from time to time, and are a decent communicator with a good brain between your ears, you'll leave approximately 90% of the developers FAR behind you.
How much code have you seen that does if if if if if (Christmas tree programming), has functions with 100's of lines of code or classes with 1000's, code that you just can't figure out no matter how much time you spend with it, or simply code that doesn't seem to be doing anything at all?
If you've worked for different companies, my guess is that's the bulk of the code.

Compare it to recruiters, most of them are like "Hi maze4, I've got a client near you in the Netherlands! We're looking for skilled Delphi developers and your profile stood out!"
I mean, the bulk of recruiters don't even read your profile, spell your name wrong, or don't fill out obvious placeholders in default messages.
Once in a while, a recruiter comes along who has obviously read your profile and makes you an offer you'd seriously consider.
But that's probably 1 out of 99.
The same goes for developers.
And as far as I'm concerned, that's most of the working population.
That's why support never seems to be helpful, they're just a bunch of bunglers, just like everyone else.
How many good managers have you had?
And what about unhelpful system administrators?
Or someone from the business who changes specifications more often than socks.

So maybe a "hero developer" is just a decent developer that looks like a hero in comparison Sigh | :sigh:
