State of Software Industry in Jinnah’s Word

by Noc Team on September 29, 2010

The great people who founded, fathered, and led this nation, left the world at a time when Pakistan was only in its initial stages. This week we have brought in front of you an exclusive interview carried out on behalf of Software Industry. We present to you our Founding father…

Wait a minute. Did we just quote founding father!!

Yes! Time to be surprised because today we have for you Mohammad Ali Jinnah, who will enlighten us on the State of Software Industry, where it stands today and how to make it prosper in the leading world markets.

CodeWeek: What is your advice for software engineers?

Jinnah: “I particularly appeal to our Software Professionals (intelligentsia and Muslim students) to come forward and rise to the occasion. You have performed wonders in this industry (the past). You are still capable of repeating the history. You are not lacking in the great qualities and virtues in comparison with the other industries (nations). Only you have to be fully conscious of that fact and to code (act) with courage, faith and unity.”

CodeWeek: Why are so many projects over budget and behind schedule?

Jinnah: Because projects (freedom) can never be attained on time by any team (nation) without hard work and commitment (suffering and sacrifice), this has been amply borne out by the recent disastrous mistakes (tragic happenings) in various projects in this Industry (this subcontinent).

CodeWeek: In this industry here to stay or just another fad

Jinnah: Software Industry (Pakistan) not only means development (freedom) and innovation (independence) but

modernization (the Muslim Ideology) which has to be preserved, which has come to us as a precious gift and treasure and which, we hope other will share with us.

CodeWeek: How would you define the working conditions of software engineers?

Jinnah: We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our engineers (men) are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.

CodeWeek: If Given A Chance, would you like to lead a software development project?

Jinnah: Our object should be programming (peace) within, and programming (peace) without. We want to live peacefully and develop (maintain) softwares (cordial friendly relations) with our immediate neighbours and with the world at large.

CodeWeek: What are your thoughts on Software piracy?

Jinnah: You have to stand guard over the development and maintenance of Software development (Islamic democracy), quality assurance (Islamic social justice) and its maintenance (the equality of manhood) in your own native soil.

CodeWeek: Gentlemen, what are your impressions of this industry we call software?

Jinnah: Pakistan is proud of her Software Industry (youth), particularly the techies and nerdies (students), who are industry (nation) builders of tomorrow. They must fully equip themselves by discipline, education, and training for the arduous task lying ahead of them.

CodeWeek: Your message to Software Engineers?

Jinnah: My message to you all is of hope, courage and confidence. Let us mobilize all our resources in a systematic and organized way and tackle the grave issues that confront us with grim determination and discipline worthy of a great Industry (nation).
