SWARM is excited to be sponsoring season 3 of the podcast Cut Your Learning Curve, a podcast about learning and the intersection of work and technology. In this season Nate Cooper, managing partner at SWARM is joined by Eve MacKnight, Director of Learning to discuss topics pertinent to life and work in our digital age.
This episode is about the developer mindset.
We begin with a blank canvas and far, far less constraints than any product in the physical world. We are not bound by the laws of physics or gravity. Stripped away of the mysterious tech terms and the hype, what software developers are actually doing all day is solving logic problems to reach a unique end. Software creation is also fundamentally non-linear: adding one new feature has the potential to create bugs elsewhere in the system.
