Bridging the code literacy gap

At Biz Dev Corp we genuinely care about coding and we could fill many blogs with the importance of coding or the threat of the shortage of coders. But have we ever spent time on the purpose of understanding code? Not really.  At Web Summit we listened to Rebecca Parsons, Chief Technology Officer of ThoughtWorks, who told us the following: “The purpose of understanding code is not to write code.

Remember the Ansoff Matrix?

Remember the strategy tool that helped you determine a growth strategy for a business? The product/market matrix that made you play around with 4 options for growth by matching up existing and new products with existing and new markets. It was first launched in the Harvard Business Review in 1957 and became a loyal companion to many while working on case studies in university.
