'noders' is a demonym for members of Everything2
'badasses' suffices, although that's clearly a joke line.

There are also "Perl monks", and "Lispers".

I've heard of device coders referred to as "Bit bangers", and AI types as "Symbol pushers".

Help Wanted:
I've also added a column for the core language principles / philosophy / manifesto.

Things like "Zen of Python", "Go Proverbs". Would love some comments with links to canonical talks or blog posts from leaders in the language and what they call their manifesto.
