Software Developer Priorities

Reading threads on Twitter, it’s a telling sign that almost all discussions from software developers/engineers I follow revolve around code, software architecture and technical stuff.

Very few think to mention customers or the greater impact on people from what do.

My priorities are:
1) People. Our customers.
2) Security and data privacy.
3) People. Our customers.
4) Code.

(The only reason security isn’t #1 is because without people, security isn’t a concern in the first place.)

But to be clear, I do spend a hefty amount of time thinking about code and software architecture. They’re just not my priority.
