Today I’ve read the following opinion from the head of one of the biggest IT companies in my country:
An IT specialist is such a strange profession that in his youth an employee is much more worth than in his old age. I am not joking. The programmer is able to withstand two technology changes, and these changes are every four to five years. And then he has to go to other things. Become a consultant, go to work with a client, become a systems architect. It’s like with footballers. At some point, they have to stop playing.
Is the same true for software testers?
