Neil Gaiman's (@neilhimself) advice for craftsmen

I know that this talk was addressed to art students, but if you consider writing code an art - which you might if you're reading this -, it applies to us too.

I myself skipped higher education and learned programming by doing it, so this means a lot to me, and expresses my thoughts completely. Each time I have encountered someone fresh out of uni, the first thing we had to do is to make him forget everything he was taught. For us programmers, one goal is to find the art in our profession. The next is to enjoy it. Thanks Neil!
