Preface: This is about the "developer community" as a whole, not the community on this forum.
One of the biggest issues I faced when I began programming was debugging. If I encountered an error, I didn't have anybody who I could ask for help face-to-face. It was in my programming infancy that I struggled with researching things online and reading through forum posts to help me learn. Fortunately, it worked out that I was able to figure out my bugs and fix them. (I know, such a big accomplishment, right? After all, that's what people in this field are supposed to do).
After but a few years and a handful of tiny projects, I've become at least somewhat stable in my abilities to search, read, learn, and improve in my programming career without having to rely on others to continually encourage me to do so. Along the way, I've had nothing but others to point me in the right direction, push me to do my best, and try things that would help me become a better developer.
What really frustrates me, though, is seeing certain folks resort to the general toxicities of petty drama when not seeing eye-to-eye with other developers, whether their disagreement is rooted in fact or not. All too many times I see people post simple questions like, "what programming language should I start with?" "what are the best resources to learn Java?" so on and so forth, to which their greeted with condescending, unwelcoming, and sometimes even nonsensical answers that inevitably warrants others to respond. This creates the unnecessary frictions that detract from the main focus of the inquiry and can deter newcomers from pursuing programming.
Developers have high horses, too, and it's clearly evident, sometimes on this very forum. My main point to all of this is to ask the question of why? It's already confusing enough out here as is, what with the vast resources and different technologies and languages at our disposal that we couldn't possibly be able to hold all answers to questions whose nature deals with relativity or comparisons. I suppose it comes down to people just want to act like they're the big cheese and know more than you or the next guy, but it makes less sense to me for this kind of thing to happen in this field among others because it's so effing huge. I feel like you have no choice but to be open to learning about things you haven't heard of, because if you aren't, how far can you really go? Half of working with technology is realizing that you're stupid and don't know everything (sarcasm about the stupid part), which I regard as the humble nature of the folks who I've encountered.
At the end of the day, we're humans just like everyone else, and no matter how different development may be from other disciplines, we falter with the rest of them.
Personally, I admire those who have more experience because they've already done the hard work and can give me the answers to things but seriously, is it too much to ask for people to be comfortable where they are? The "we're in this together" attitude is what drew me in, and it's truly upsetting when there are people out there who get worked up for whatever reason and project that onto perspective programmers/developers.
