I appreciated what @siracusa said on a recent ATP, that if you’re an indie developer, you have experience “managing” to some extent. “My team” is about to ship a major upgrade to MarsEdit, after major upgrades to Black Ink and FastScripts during the pandemic. Yeah, I rule.
All of this while never printing a page of source code or diagramming a single architecture on a whiteboard. Elon Musk can’t afford coders like me.
