Social Skills In Developers

We all known at least one of them.  The prima donna, the ego on legs, the one developer who is famously skilled, but is, to put it bluntly, an asshole.

If you're one of them, you probably need to stop reading now.

If you've got one on your team, you probably need to get them out of your critical path.

Despite our professions acceptance of heroism, the presence of a toxic person can kill a team, or
 a project, or a company.

The biggest risk is to your team - you risk alienating all the rest of them, and at some point, you will piss off your resident genius and will have nobody to turn to to save your ass.
