Summary and Resources

One of the most frustrating software projects I've been on involved webcam spying and having our code rewritten.

A large company that bought out two young entrepreneurs hired me and other consultants to help them.

But the entrepreneurs didn't really want help. Soon it was apparent that they had no desire to listen to our advice, or treat our opinions as worth anything whatsoever!

In this story, I share how software developers can act irrationally when they are under fear of being shown something "they don't know".

Have you ever had people who hired you play games to hide what you find? Leave me a comment below.
