Don’t Call Yourself A Programmer, And Other Career Advice

Patrick McKenzie – Don't Call Yourself A Programmer, And Other Career Advice:

"The person who has decided to bring on one more engineer is not doing it because they love having a geek around the room, they are doing it because adding the geek allows them to complete a project (or projects) which will add revenue or decrease costs. Producing beautiful software is not a goal. Solving complex technical problems is not a goal. Writing bug-free code is not a goal. Using sexy programming languages is not a goal. Add revenue. Reduce costs. Those are your only goals."
