From 5 to 1 and back - Ramping up by learning languages

The Dreyfus Learning Model has a scale that ranges from beginner to mastery. If mastery is a 5 and beginner is a 1, the most critical skill of a programmer is the ability to learn. This talk will be roughly 1/3 code, and 2/3 describing why learning languages has made Bruce a better programmer, by looking at code examples beyond the BEAM.
