[quote=“mark4”]The industry is populated by two kinds of people.
1: Those who understand what they do, not manage (Jon)
2: Those who manage what they do, NOT UNDRESTAND.
Ill pick a software developer who falls under category 1 above any day of the week.[/quote]
That’s just bullshit. A false enumeration of options. A sad cup of tea.
There’s a large number of people who understand what they do AND are able manage. That third category represents all the successfully run projects (like linux).[/quote]
You OBVIOUSLY have not spent the last 25+ years as a ‘consultant’ realtime embedded control applications software engineer. i on the other hand HAVE. I can tell you from years of experience that the industry is vastly over populated with the incompetent, at least on the managerial side. If the management would simply MANAGE and not try to tel engineers HOW to do their job things would probably be much better. yes there are a few very talented engineers who are also damned good at management.
Im not one of them, seems neither is Jon
