I saw the news in the technology section of the newspaper this week that Compudigm is no more.
Back in the days when I was a Delphi specialist, not a C# one, I spent a couple of years working for Compudigm as a developer.
I learnt a lot at Compudigm about, well, a lot of things - working with smart people has a way of helping you get smarter yourself.
Even though I’ve moved on to other things, I’ve always wanted Compudigm to succeed - not just because there’s code of mine that I’d like to see used, but because I’ve always thought that the seePOWER product was just too cool to fail.
It seems I was wrong.
Five things I learnt at Compudigm:
- Project managers seldom object to too much information.
- Sometimes, the Customer is wrong. The trick is in how you tell them.
- Smart code isn’t always enough.
- The right picture can be worth 1,000,000 data points.
- Being right isn’t enough - you need to be heard too.
