How to be a 10x developer

Every once in a while, someone says something about a 10x developer, and right on queue someone else pipes up and says the 10x developer doesn’t exist.

I want to skip the debate about whether or not the 10x developer truly exists and just tell you how to be one:

Teach someone what you know.

Whether or not it’s literally possible for you to be 10x more productive than you are today, if you teach 10 people to do something they don’t know today, then you’ve contributed 10x to “developerness.”
