Music artist and developer…what’s the difference?admin, · Categories: Development, Music
Last Friday I visited the North Sea Jazz festival. One of my musical highlights of the year. The chance to see my musical heroes shine on a large (and sometimes small) stage.
Being an absolute music lover and experienced software developer, I was confronted with a parallel universe:
- The band can be called (Scrum)team
- The conductor is the lead developer (or project manager depending on your point of view)
- Sheet music are called requirements or design
- Fans are like customers
And like any profession you have to work on your skills continuously too stay up-to-date.
And both are contagious: play along with a song versus taking over the keyboard and mouse for a particular solution.
And you have to be very creative.
And there are many more similarities.
In the end…are there any differences?
