India

In Brazil there is a crappy soap opera that has 50% of its broadcasting time based on characters that are supposed to live in India, Just like this soap opera distorts the reality, I have been done doing the very same thing.

India has become one of the largest software producers (  I precisely work doing software by the way),  and there has been a lot of people here that tell that India will make us lose our jobs. Instead of doing a proper and further analysis, I followed the flow and started making severe critics to them. It was all stupid. I realize now and I apologize to everyone that is concerned.

I have been working with guys from India, and man, these guys are really good at writing software. We may even not be as good as them. At least I am not, I can tell.

They suffer from a big problem though: their companies cannot maintain employees long enough to create a stable staff and that is why sometimes you see lack of quality in some of their software.

After all, it is my current goal to be at least half as good as those guys. And avoid being stupid once again.
