Horace Dediu: Developer as Artist @Tampere Goes Agile 2012
How to understand the creative process if you have a degree in Engineering. Steve Jobs once joked that Engineers think Hollywood writers do their work by drinking beer and telling jokes (and that Hollywood thinks that building software is about writing a check). In reality creating software and creating art are more similar than they are different. The phenomenon of mass market software in the form of entertainment has blurred the lines even further. Making software has become much more like making movies than making machines. There are lessons to be learned from designers, marketers, managers and performers that all developers should learn.
