What happened to the software profession?
There is a tendency of hiring managers to overstate the importance of their own domain, and severely diminish the importance of the software. If professions were meals, software would not be considered the main course but a condiment, the ketchup on the side of the plate. But think about what software does, the extent to which it forms the very tissue and sinew of the corporate entity. Where's the beef? It's in the software.
