In current digital world there is a software for almost everything you can think of, and as such the demand for developers is also rising in leaps and bounds. But ‘good software’ needs ‘good developers’ – developers with quality mindset, developers who take the responsibility of their code, developers who commit to quality and have great empathy for their end user – to some it may sound fancy, but this is a hard truth (at-least in my experience).
If I am writing a query that only caters to 100 requests in a second, and if I get 200 requests, I can take responsibility as good software citizen and return a simple message that I am unable to process your request because that is beyond my capacity to address; or I can simply do nothing and let the request time out and let AI take over.
What would you do? do let me know in the comments.
