There's a post on DevAuthority about five qualities of a senior developer. Here's the highlights.

1. Be a leader
2. Be a teacher
3. Be compassionate
4. Understand customer service
5. Understand technology

The list is spot on in my opinion. Understanding technology is even intentionally last - because technology changes, and the senior developers are the ones that can adapt to change the best.

So how do you measure up?
