Is the Difficulty of Software Development Overrated?
In a time where computers were designed by humans, software was built in assembly language or machine language. Writing complex software was incredibly difficult. Even today, it is still difficult to write complex software, especially in today’s world where a simple bug in a program can lead to a catastrophic failure. Having strong technical and creative skills is important to succeed in a software development career, but it is not sufficient to be successful.
In order to build a successful software product, you need to have a good understanding of how older software works. This is the only way to understand its history and improve on it. You also need to know how to develop a system for its intended use. Otherwise, you will be wasting your time developing a software that does not meet your needs. In addition, you must be familiar with the architecture and features of an old system, since the costs of a poorly developed application can be higher than the cost of lost engineering time.
A software engineer must be able to write code, but he or she must be able to think critically and stick with a problem until a solution is found. A good developer isn’t necessarily the smartest person in the room. They’re a problem solver, and they want to learn new things. This book is a must read for any software developer! It will make you want to become a software engineer!
