People Not Tech

August 22, 2014

My new gig has forced me to grow as an individual and a software developer. When I interviewed I let them know that I had never managed a team before. They said that I “would be fine.” Needless to say it’s been a bumpy ride. Over the last 9 months I’ve come to realize that software in general is less about tech and more about people. I think it partially stems from the fact that software development is more art than science. And software engineers are closer to artists than engineers.
