To create an abstraction simple enough to make complex business logic challenges solvable for non programmers.
The issue I see today is programmers solving problems they don't understand as well as the user. I think two ways might be taken:
- Programmers specialize in other fields and solve problems there
- Other professionals create their own software
Both will happen in the future (IMHO) and I want to help the second happening.
Note: Excel does this really well, but I think we can so quite better today.2
Sadly I just can imagine more development directed to increase consumer behavior (ads, social) and less to actually improve people's lives.
Shouldn't software development have an identity other than the enterprise? We are probably the better communicated professional community there is. Shouldn't we rise? ✊2
I can understand why in technical interviews they use those algorithmic questions. It's an incredibly short period of time to assess someone's coding capabilities. BUT can't we find a better way to do it? I mean, I've never implemented dijkstra in a work environment, and I had never heard of someone that faces those kind of problems in a normal day of work.
I may be judging by my limited information, but wouldn't be more useful to actually ask to solve a more plausible problem?
For example, create a microservice that implements this API, send us the GitHub link and the API url.
I started to work in a new project for a house architect, basically a management system for his studio. Well, guess what? Twenty years ago he programmed some sort of software using BASIC, and of course that means he knows exactly how software works!
Worst kind of stakeholder, like going to the doctor and telling them how to diagnose, because you used a thermostat once.3
Do you have those little success moments while coding? Like the feeling of avoiding a new bug because of a test failing 😍2
