Programming and aging

Posted by amrosama, 21 August 2009 - - - - - - · 540 views

currently i do freelancing with a partner of mine and we have noticed that most employers and managers require programmers and web-developers to be young and fresh.
at first it seemed weird because who would make use of a web-developer with zero experience?! few words came into my mind; creativity, easy to change their minds, cost less money, lack of...

lately i had to use ASP.NET after i have dumped it and replaced it with php because i cant use PHP in a college project...and...i actually starting to like it(again).

in the past few years ive noticed how much being a programmer is wanted by people, people think that programmers sit on chair all day typing on their keyboard and get paid massive amount of money, and when people watch Hollywood movies and see the elite hacker who clicks "hack CIA" button or opens the cmd and types "steal money" and gets his job done. all...

Computerizing: friend or foe

Posted by amrosama, 25 December 2008 - - - - - - · 407 views

I’ve been thinking about programming from just one side, the good side till one day while working I found out that programming (or computerizing)  makes people spend less time working and do less effort which will one day make the manager think:” why the hell am I paying them, they are just doing few clicks and hitting keys on a keyboard”.
