Hi Peter,

What do you think (from what you have gathered by interviewing these people) make these people become among the best of the industry ? What they have done/doing special to be there ?

Thanks,

As I mentioned in another topic, they are (or were) all passionate about programming. And they all worked on interesting projects. But that latter may be an artifact of my selection process; I had heard of them because they worked on interesting software and I chose them because that would be more interesting to read about. So there may be equally great programmers who've been toiling away, unnoticed, on boring software in the bowels of some big company, who you and I have never heard of.
