During the last few years, the amount of written text and spoken word about the great change that is currently evolving, has tremendously increased. The main focus is always computers, which start taking more and more central part of our lives. Nowadays, via our computer we meet friends, we buy and sell stuff, we manage companies, we watch videos, we pay our taxes and we can even enlarge our p**** (I’ve never tried that one though… hmmm…). But no one ever mentions the behind-the-scenes-hard-workers of this wonderful change – the developers!
A few days ago I was wondering how many developers are there. Searching the web resulted in a number – about 10 million of us exist!
I can’t tell if this number is true or not, but it sounds logical to me.
Assuming it’s right, consider the power that each of us, developers, has upon his or her product.
We are only about 0.001% of the entire world population and look what we are responsible of and what we have achieved – we’ve made the change happen!
Just like the Egyptians with mathematics, ancient Rome with architecture, ancient Greek with democracy and Great Britain with the industrial revolution – we are the new legends!
So next time when you feel down, the build’s just broken or someone goes hard on you, keep your chin up and tell them “what have you done for the human race?”.
We make it happen!
P.S. Does this enlargement thing really work? :)
