I’m not about to fill the boots of Muhammad Ali or Steve Jobs, but in my own small way I’ve come back to help make a difference at Borland. Yes, it’s now official as you can see from my real profile photos – I’ve made the decision to shake off my reclusive past and starting working again for all you developers out there.
My coming back won’t mean much unless I can help create game-changing software in the test environment and enterprise space, and that’s exactly what I plan to do. With the help of my new colleagues at Borland I’ve even laid out a vision for software development that covers some important ground including the need to:
• Keep it open
• Don’t make it big, make it better
• Focus on the user experience
• Meet every platform need
• Make it affordable
• Listen to the community
You can see me on my the journey back to Borland below. And read about my vision for software development in more detail here. It would be great to have your views on that because, after all, I’ve come back to stand up for what you – the developer – really needs.
