The Software Industry and Computer Programmers

A google employee once wrote an article in which he said something like:

"Often we would interview a programmer who had an incredible amount of knowledge on a wide range of subjects, but couldn't program Hello World in any language."

It's really amazing how many people in the software industry simply know nothing about programming computers.

We're talking about core technical people such as Product Managers - not people in unrelated departments such as marketing - who have big plans and strong opinions on everything related to technology, but lack basic technical skills.

To put it in perspective, imagine an entire department of road planning where no one really knows to drive.
