To look like a god among other developers, all you need to know is Vim. Seriously. Your code is more amazing if said code was written in Vim. People watching you type won’t even know where to begin. A couple edits here, a few motions there, and now your module is complete. Slow thinkers code slowly, but you code at the speed of light.

Trouble with the terminal? You OWN the terminal. The terminal is a servant and you are its master. Because you can handle the terminal so well, server side stuff to you is cakewalk. DevOps, sysadmin? Piece of cake. Deployments? No problem. Databases, scaling, infrastructure, cloud, distributed systems, internet, Web2.0. What is this, kindergarten?

You are a God among developers.
