Ar trebui ca tara asta sa fie plina de milionari din programare, insa ceva lipseste din ecuatie, nu stiu ce.
Banuiesc ca nu a fost vorba de aranjamente sau amabilitati fata de gazde, dar concursul international de programare Yahoo! Open Hack, desfasurat in week-end la Bucuresti, are drept castigatori numai echipe romanesti. Din juriul au facut parte doi dintre executivii Yahoo! -  Raymie Stata(CTO) si pe Todd Hay (seful Yahoo! Developer Network).

In timpul celor doua zile ale Yahoo! Open Hack, cei peste 350 de „hackeri” au baut 1090 de doze de Red Bull, 435 litri de Pepsi, 25 kg de cafea.

  1. […] este o surpriza, doar stim ca avem tineri destoinici si talentati in ale programarii. Bine le zice Victor in articolul sau: “Ar trebui ca tara asta sa fie plina de milionari din programare, insa ceva […]

  2. Unul din principalele motive este ca nu stim sa ne vindem 🙂

    Apoi pentru ca suntem programatori buni dar nu avem si oameni de business buni care sa transforme linii de cod bine scrise in business-uri.

    Iar de aici… doar in jos 🙂

  3. Sa ne vindem CE ? niste aplicatii oligoide .. unde-i inovatia? nu ma mir ca nu trebuim nimanui 🙂 .. si doamne fereste sa se transforme in bussines-uri aplicatiile de mai sus ( o zic din motive morale ).

  4. Subscriu,in ziua de azi piata este saturata …de 10 ani in IT nu mai apare nimic ,nu stiu ce ar mai putea sa apara.
    Se vind lucruri inutile gen tableta X ,tableta de care nici nu ma intereseaza pentru ca nu este folositoare.Nu este nici prea mare nici prea mica,nu este nici cal nici magar,dar este la moda!La fel sunt si aplicatiile,tembele inutile,nu iese nici un profit din ele,nefolositoare.

  5. @Jager Dendi: Ar trebui sa te gandesti ca aplicatiile de mai sus au fost aplicatii care trebuiau facute in 24 ore. Care-i cel mai maret lucru facut de tine in 24 ore?
