"Those titles translate to:

Developer
Programmer
Engineer
Code Monkey"

I don't understand your reasoning here. What makes a back-end dev a "developer" vs a front-end dev a "programmer"? Were you being facetious?

That was satire, the next sentence was "I think titles are fairly worthless". I was trying to make a point titles are arbitrary and have less to do with what you do and more with who you do it for.

Yes, humility and a willingness to fail is what I’m always writing about. A+ response. :)
