Do You Need To Be A “Hardware Guy”, To Be A Good “Software Guy”?

Tom and Chunga both developed a passion for computers in a similar way. Neither one of them started out as a “software guy”. Rather, they each got started by building and modifying their own custom built computers. They were “hardware guys”, first! That just how it was back in the day.

Today, things seem to be much different, with modern engineers and developers cutting their teeth in software, and staying in that field for their entire careers. Tom says that most modern developers have little to no understanding of the hardware their creations actually run on! Is that a good thing?  Tom will explain many of the reasons this can happen, and he has a bunch of opinions on wether or not it’s good for both individuals and companies.  Listen now!
