I got in touch with this question two times in the last days: would you buy the product you make?

One time is at BetterSoftware where Francesco Cirillo (in Anti-IF per manager) said in his talk (talking to sw developers):

would you buy the software you write?

Another time is in Seth’s blog post Put your name on it:

If you can’t sign it, don’t ship it.

What I love most is the last sentence: many people choose to work for a big organization precisely so they can avoid signing much of anything.

Which kind of worker are you?
