Computers : Planely Engineering
At a computer software engineering course, the participants were given
an awkward question to answer:
"If you had just boarded an airplane and discovered that your team of
programmers had been responsible for the flight control software, how
many of you would disembark immediately?"
Among the ensuing forest of raised hands only one man sat motionless.
When asked what he would do, he replied that he would be quite content
to stay aboard. With his team's software, he said, the plane was
unlikely to even taxi as far as the runway, let alone take off.
