  Why you don’t need a programmer


Once or twice a month I get the question from an aspiring entrepreneur that’s been pushing their idea forward in hopes to (very soon) create a company out of what they’ve been working so hard on.  They’ve spent countless hours working through all the details of what this new product will do, who they’re going to partner with and what they’re going to charge for it.

I gave her the same answer.I don't mean that everyone should become a software engineer. I do mean that everyone should understand software engineering (or whatever technical...
