|I'm a software developer, just like many of you.|
My software has issues, lots of them. Customers are calling, there's this and that to do. The to-do list is seemingly never ending.
And then there's every day where I'm overwhelmed again:
Snapchat launches a fantastic re-design. Facebook changes its newsfeed algorithm with significant implications for marketing agencies and small businesses. Facebook replaces its complete Android SDK with a new API. You have to adapt. You have the SDK in your app? Change the references. Apple releases a completely new programming language. Apple releases new versions of iOS and OS X. Google brings Android to TV and your wrist. They release a brand-new Android version. A new cross-platform design language. They replace the Android VM. Notifications change how they work. This. And that. And this. And that.
Issues and customer feedback pile up in your mailbox. You don't know how to manage the today and the past and yet the future is waiting with millions of new opportunities, needs, demands and risks.
