I thought it’s impossible to significantly enhance this collection, at least with something similarly cyber-h4xx0r-zen-ninja-ish. Well, I am not so sure any more (via linkedin):
Maybe with the Web2.0 bust (?), popular clichés for uber-giga-great developers are fading out too – indeed, who needs an old-fashioned web2.0 ninja (even if he’s a pirate in his free time) if you can hire a Web2.5 code terrorist to…. umm… get some coding done?!?
Update: The article was featured on hacker news and now it’s clear that Giles’s original article can be significantly extended, for example with:
- Python 3000 Jihadists
- Ruby Bionic Commando
- Rails Black Magicians
and others… check out hacker news if this is still not enough inspiration for you!
