If he hasn't had a beard. He should better start growing one. :-)

But the list of counterexamples is nearly as long as the Examples list. I think the beard/programming language success correlation is not statistically significant!

No. I had a beard in my early 20's, and it never stopped itching. I don't want one again. Besides, I work with power tools and have no interest in having my face pulled into the drill press because my beard got snagged on it.

John Backus, designer of the fortran didn't have a beard. I think, in some cases, this rule may be disregarded.
