re: Accuracy vs Clarity VIEW POST


That's a good thought and reminds me of an interview I once had. The interview was for a technical position but one of the people interviewing me was totally non-technical. At some point, I had referenced github a few times -- and the person finally threw her hands up and said "I need to ask you a dumb question. I hear people talk about github all the time but I have no idea what it is. Can you please explain it to me?"

I asked her if she knew what version control meant and when she said no, the best I could do was say 'github is google drive for developers. it lets you keep all previous versions of code and collaborate with others.'


That's a really good way to describe github. Google's office products have been a boon for me when coming up with descriptions. I use it to describe concurrency a lot :)
