Never Give Up
I am not sure what the young generation these days are coming up to. They give up easily.
Some examples I have heard from my friends:
A young developer is hired. The manager then gives the developer a project to work on. It is the company codebase. The developer is then asked to tweak the code to add a new feature. After three days, the developer then stop coming to office. He just gives up and decides to find another job.
This is something that I am hearing more and more. Thus, I am very concerned about the future.
Winston Churchill is someone that comes to mind immediately on this very subject. Especially his famous speech “Never Give Up” which I am sure has taken a lot of spin from the original.
Now, I do not know what really happens in the developer minds. Did he not receive enough training ? I am sure he can ask his senior. He is not the only developer there.
Did he not have access to internet connection, and cannot google the difficult part of the tasks ?
Is he not aware of stackoverflow or stackexchange that provides Question and Answer for a lot of programming languages ?
To me, problems are parts of life. It is necessary to take us to the next level.
Every problem have a solution. We just have to work on it long enough.
