definition of a good programmer
A beginner knows a programming language and perhaps technologies, patterns and frameworks. A good programmer knows how to apply them to solve and represent complex problems and real-world systems. An advanced programmer can also make the solution maintainable, and meet other non-functional requirements.
It is not the language that makes programs appear simple. It is the programmer that make the language appear simple!
