Over the years one of the things that I’ve seen missing in disproportionate amounts are many opportunities for part time work in the software development industry. There are two things about this fact that make me kind of chuckle at the ignorance behind them.
Much of the time there isn’t any part time work because so much of management and the existing group think is that more hours equal more productivity and more product. This is, however, ignorant and wrong.
If software developers did work fewer hours, they actually have a high possibility that they’d become more productive, not less.
