You can write code when you can get something to work.  Once is enough :-)

It is safe to say you can write code if you get stuck and can understand the answers other people give to fix it.

You can consider yourself comfortable with (LSL) code if you get stuck and can solve your problem by reading the wiki.

You can consider yourself an experienced coder if you can read the (equivalent of) the wiki for another programing language and write something that works using that.

It is safe to say you are an expert coder when your programs work better than other peoples' and they ask your advice.

And you should still expect to fail even in the simplest programing task.  If it works first time the bugs are just better hidden.

[Repeat for each new language.

Take 1 step backwards for every month without practicing - in each language

Restart for all languages every 2 years because the paradigms will change (eg; batch/interactive, command-line/GUI, menu/event driven, data/object oriented)]
