Focusing purely on individual achievement misses the larger picture that teams are required to build great software. When a female staffer made a key point, the other women would repeat it and give credit to the author, which forced everyone to notice where the idea came from. He’s now the COO of a startup, and he mentioned that he was spending a lot of his time teaching what he considered basic teamwork to employees, especially around accountability. Excellence takes a lot of time and energy to cultivate, especially as our individual knowledge base is becoming more and more specialized [ 10 ], so pick something you enjoy doing because you'll probably be at this a while.

This is a perfectly fine article, but this isn't what a "10x developer" means: a 10x developer is one who works 10 times as fast as another (e.g. does the same task in 10% of the time).
