Does passion make a better programmer?

激情能造就更好的程序员吗?

If we interpret it as “enthusiasm,” then the answer is yes, of course. However, there are other equally important personality traits I would look for:

如果我们将其解释为「热忱」,那么答案当然是肯定的。但我会寻求其他同样重要的性格特质。

Steve McConnell says in Code Complete: “By all means, get excited about programming. But excitement is no substitute for competency. Remember which is more important.”

Steve McConnell 在《代码大全》中说:“ 一定要对编程感到兴奋,但兴奋感替代不了能力,要记住哪个更重要。”

Trendy buzzwords come and go. But in the end the qualities of a good worker are fairly steady through the years and industries. As part of a complete package passion can fit in nicely, but only if carefully defined.

时髦的热词来来去去,但最终一名好的工作者的品质在不同年份和不同行业里都是相当稳定的。作为整体的一部分,只有仔细限定,激情才能很好地发挥作用。
