A rockstar programmer is a programmer who becomes popular not because of technical achievement, but rather by the volume of fanboys who blindly consume his/her products. He or she poses in numerous techie magazines, giving interviews about nothing but Web 2.0 poetry, and attending totally useless "conventions".
