Real Developers have Big Egos

Every now and than I read a snobbish rant, usually beginning with "real programmers/developers use [insert buzzword here]".
Bob Grommes wrote a great post on the subject:
"To my way of thinking, a “real developer” is someone who consistently produces quality software systems that delight customers. “Real developers” do this in spite of whatever handicaps happen to exist in their world. They know that no technology, platform, API or software ecosystem is perfect, but they know how to leverage the strengths of what they are given to work with to produce excellent results. And if they don’t know, they can admit it to themselves, and learn quickly."
