How do you recognise good programmers if youÃ¢â¬â¢re a business guy?
ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not as easy as it sounds. CV experience is only of limited use here, because great programmers donÃ¢â¬â¢t always have the Ã¢â¬ÅofficialÃ¢â¬Â experience to demonstrate that theyÃ¢â¬â¢re great. In fact, a lot of that CV experience can be misleading. Yet there are a number of subtle cues that you can get, even from the CV, to figure out whether someoneÃ¢â¬â¢s a great programmer.
