Very few  of  juniors of today are lucky enough to  receive true support from their employers to help them design a realistic career development course. The bad thing is that even if you find some employers who care to offer help there,  they are always minded with either of the two ends of the spectrum: Technical competence and/or Soft skills. Well and good, that's better than going just technical m anyways in a "Talent Intensive" industry  . Actually , there is a lot missing in this conventional approach to build the right career in software development. That’s what I intended to avail soon to the development community.

My first open lecture targeting mainly to help developers of all ranks is now, by the virtue of some interests I got from colleagues by mail, covering more that can interest leaders as well as HR people in the arena.

How do I write the Quotes that you read here? Where do they actually come from?

Unless they are by (and signed) another sayer, which is rare here, these are my very personal, dear and genuine experiences. They ray from the deepest engagements with people, projects, processes and life on the whole, those I've encountered in my long and still active career. I find it a wonderful experience to distill them into those shiny little phrases that you read along.

In many cases, like what happens in arts (well, I'm  myself an artist in part), I get inspired by a daily situation sparking an idea for one of those short phrases, and I tell you the truth, it becomes a hell of a pressure on my mind until that comes out loud somehow, mainly here, or sometimes on Techstamina News and/or my LinkedIn Profile first. They find their shorter ways on the media first in rare cases, mainly when I'm in the middle of another story and wish not to let the idea go while the site gets updated. Ideas, especially good ones, leave you so swiftly if you don't fasten a good grip on them. But in all cases, they must rest in their repository on this site.

This is what I wished to tell you, so far, about Techstamina Quotes.

Now, go and get this new little one. It just popped into my mind an hour ago, getting some preaches from someone, who really inspired me with that.

One post ago on this page, I talked to you about the major clue of success in producing good software. Here is the rationale:

For one thing, that represents the most vigorous testimonial for the usability of your product.

Secondly, good software must break the barriers with its users quickly, and when it does they become more familiar with it, and when they become, they dig for more functionality and usefulness in the piece of software they use. This is exactly when they get to use it better than its makers. I've witnessed many cases, indeed.

If you have that self-commitment then you fit for it: go ahead and take it. But start to build it for the good of the whole, not just the self.
Leadership does not come in a course! It could start there, but it is a long journey of daily practice and persistence on improvement.

I'm happy!
The first time since long to feel good about a young man/woman's understanding to his/her role as leader. One young colleague says through his media presence that he's being offered a leadership role and he doesn't feel he is yet ready to play it. I know the man in person, and I'm confident of his technical competence. What made me happy in the story is that this young man, in one word, realizes that leading is not a promotion/advantage, it's on the contrary a responsibility/commitment. The discussion that rolled on on his post reflected a lot that need to be told to his peers and probably their employer.
We will come back to that.

Look guys, we are an industry which doubles its people every 5 years. This simply means that no less half of us are fresh grads with no or limited ground experience. We are blessed by the energy of the younger ones, but some complaints of their lack of discipline are raised by some industry experts too, with whom I don't share this view. I see that as a need for support for the younger ones that considers "changes in human culture" with time.

Leaving this unsolved is called by some industry great minds a phenomena of Perpetual Inexperience. It propagates infecting our quality in what we do, our morale, our productivity and satisfaction.

I'll be back on that, hopefully soon enough. Working hard, anyways!

War looks to have become on wires, across the ether, and not terrains, waves or winds! The claimed Russian attack on the U.S Cyberspace proves it.

The Hearing of National Intelligence before a Senate Armed Services Committee on foreign cyber threats, a couple of hours ago, testifies that the role played by software has gone beyond limits. Here is how I described this in Techstamina's Mission.

The big thing in the context of the hearing was the need to "recruit talents" for the mission, leaving us with the impression that software talents will be enlisted as the Aces or the "Blue Crossers" of the knowledge age.

There is more of that coming on the shoulders of you: Software People!
