Welcome to series of post dedicated becoming better developer.
Programmers time is very expensive.

Software development is serious competitive business.
Difference between world class and ordinary coder is wast, and so are the wages. World class developer can save days of work or serious setbacks. That means lower bill for customer, more time for fixing bugs and higher chance of not missing deadline(that means more time for your life).

World class thinks on different level.

Never fought about that? Well the road is very long. First step on road to World Class is becoming better developer.
