Are coders worth it?
If you are a developer I recommend you spend some time in reading this blog post from James Somers. I can’t say I agree with his views but it has some valid points. Especially if you consider the Facebook share price in stock exchange market.
‘We call ourselves web developers, software engineers, builders, entrepreneurs, innovators. We’re celebrated, we capture a lot of wealth and attention and talent. We’ve become a vortex on a par with Wall Street for precocious college grads. But we’re not making the self-driving car. We’re not making a smarter pill bottle. Most of what we’re doing, in fact, is putting boxes on a page. Users put words and pictures into one box; we store that stuff in a database; and then out it comes into another box.’
