Jim talks with Alan, Simon and Tiago about the myth of the full stack developer.
Alan plays the role of the database and webservices architect. Simon is the user interface and client-side maven and Tiago is our resident network, security and back-end guru. We ask the key questions -- can any single developer master EVERY layer of the software stack? Should a CEO or Engineering manager expect his/her developers to be knowledgeable about every piece of software? We also learn that Alan hates art and white wine, but likes red wine. Plus shout outs to the Back to the Future trilogy, Poland, La Sardine in the West Loop and Ocean's Eleven.
