Here is this week’s Minute of Overpass. All about the corporate developers (as opposed to the start-up ones).
Hi, this is Eric from Overpass and this is A Minute of Overpass where I spend one minute each week, unscripted, talking about Overpass, the app industry and things of that nature. And this week I wanna talk about the importance of a corporate background. So I spent years as a corporate developer like a decade so I know what it’s like to work in a big IT environment where you have a team dedicated to databases. You have a team dedicated development. You have a team dedicated to look at the servers. I’ve also worked for small companies where you have to do pretty much everything yourself. And one thing as an app developer we kind of at these people – the corporate developers, as hanging a lot of baggage. They kinda move slower. They take longer to do things. They look for sign off. They want to have meetings every five minutes. However, there’s some a lot of importance that comes from working.. to having a background in a corporate environment. Well for example you know about change management. You know how to not take down servers willy-nilly. You know the kind of things that can go wrong. You know how to get sign off and how to complete a project, things like that.. So, one of the things I find when working with junior developers that haven’t come from a corporate environment is how difficult that can be. However, it’s also difficult working for corporate developers who have never worked in a small team environment. That’s it. That’s my Minute of Overpass. My name is Eric. I make apps. If you want an app, give us a call. Our number’s 0845 834 1008. I’ll talk to you next week.
