Discussion on: Does your background make your work unique?

I think every person has something unique to bring to the table.

You'd be very surprised to learn how life experiences affects your approach to software.

For example, people that came from an environment of poverty will have a natural tendency towards conservation of resources, be it computing power, data and so on.

Compare this to someone who grew up with one or both parents as software engineers. Two very, very different ways of thinking between the two individuals!

For me the lesson is that we all have our own story, and our stories should be used to help each other out. It makes life so much more interesting to live!
