What's the best quality — technical or not — that a software developer should have?
I'll share two perspectives when answering this question!
Personally, I like to see the best quality being the ability to ask good questions. There's a really good article on asking good questions here, it outlines exactly what personally I look for in anyone
As a small business owner, I look for one strong quality, your attitude towards working, the culture, and other employees. If you often get hot-headed, angry, aggressive, and there is not fair reason to be, then it makes the environment uncomfortable for other individuals, and it's not a good fit.
Ask good questions, and have a good attitude towards life in general!
Have I asked a good question? :)
This last one is not :-P
