You’re Not a Real Programmer Until….

“You’re not a real web programmer until you can hack an Apache server.”  The informant heard these words quite often when he was just beginning to hone his skills in computer programming and hacking.  It’s also these words that led the informant to, in fact, hack his first Apache server.

An Apache server is the type of server that most databases run on, the informant says.  The informant thinks this rite of passage is interesting, but that some people would say it’s not true.  The informant believes it ultimately depends on who you work with when computer programming.

I agree with this analysis.
