So, Rich and Anthony are at Google I/O today, and I’m hearing everyone was blown away by Google Wave.
Rich tweeted, IM’ed and finally called me to say how awesome it was. I’m now waiting to watch the hour-and-a-half demo that rocked so hard.
I’m hoping Rich’s session went well. He was bummed that they conflicted with another Wave session. So, hopefully the room wasn’t too empty.
A couple Oracle folks were in attendance and snapped a few photos. We’ll embed the video when it’s posted, and maybe Rich will post some thoughts.
Anyway, to fill the air in the meantime, I have a question.
I’ve had several different job roles in my tech career, support/IT, consulting, sales consulting, development, and if you work in tech long enough, you probably dabble in all of the above and others at one point or another.
Which do you like best?
I’d have to say I prefer development to the others because I enjoy solving problems with software. Not that the other roles don’t have this too, but in development, it’s the main focus. I always prefer the requirements, design and build phases, and like a true development wonk, I tend to lose interest during testing and documentation.
I know, it’s tough to ensure you’ve solved a problem if you’re not testing enough, which is another reason I like beta-testing. At least then, I don’t have to guess all the ways users will behave; I can just turn them loose to show me.
Plus, you don’t have the urgency of support or sales, which is nice.
Tell us what you prefer and why in the comments.
