Doing math does not a mathematician make

Wednesday, August 27, 2008
Add 2 numbers. Thats maths by definition.
Add 2 numbers of 9999 digits each. Thats 'challenging' maths, speaking of magnitude.
But doing such simple math of epic proportions is not what qualifies you as a real 'mathematician'.

In Indian IT industry, we do programming ; dumb outsourced programming.
True, its 'programming' by definition. True its 'challenging'. But only in magnitude.
By doing it, you can't call yourself a real 'programmer'. Dumb.

I was a real programmer at heart. I wrote better programs in my 1st year of college. here its mostly about managing 'challenging' projects.

I feel sick here Is there any future for me in 'IT'?

P.S : Quick Trivia: What do I call my experience in the 'Indian IT industry'?
Answer : Dumb Outsourced Programming Experience (DOPE)

But this dope does not give you any high. Though, it does make you numb. And dumb. What's worse, you get 'withdrawal symptoms' while you are actually into it. Symptoms clearly indicating that you want to withdraw.
