  • Depending on the type of chair you want to sit in, you need an expert carpenter, not a structural engineer.
  • When hiring computer programmers, you either hire “process-oriented” people who write or require many types of documentation and sign-offs to deliver traceable, manageable solutions or “results-leaning” people who routinely compress processes to arrive at solutions / fix earlier.
  • Many of the companies that do not want computer scientists (studying computation or systems characteristics) and research, want systems quickly built and practical automation.
