Interesting article. The last paragraph is true – All too often we lose site of the human factors in software. It doesn’t matter if management pushes people to overwork or if it was their own bright idea to get ahead. The result is always the same. People are just people. They are not machines that can produce day after day without some kind of human interaction. In the end everyone needs a life.

And what my friend David told me is very true as well- Programmers put in so much effort, get the thing done. Then wonder why they don’t get more promotions. But managers just see them as workers. Just promote them to “higher workers”…

#But always a worker in their eyes…#
