Healing The Rift Between Programmers And Managers
It’s common in many companies for there to be animosity between programmers and managers – but it’s smarter to consider healing that rift.
Earlier in my career I met many other software developers who loved to complain about management.
And I’ve been just as frustrated, especially when it seems like management doesn’t know what they’re doing.
But eventually after having several experiences talking to other programmers I respected, my perspective changed.
In this episode, I share some stories about software projects I have been on where I was challenged to be enlightened to continue.
I hope these stories help you think about what you can do to take the power of your career back into your own hands.
