The software engineer who tells you it needs 2 months and $20,000.

We all have met the software engineer who tells you they need 2 months and $10,000 to build your app. These people live in the past and are trying to make a quick buck. The best thing you can do is ignore them, because they are not forward-thinking nor do they want to be. So how can you expect them to help you through the long and difficult journey of getting your ideas into the market and changing course quickly when you need to? All they will do is slow you down and drain your bank account.

The software engineer of today (not tomorrow) encourages you to build fast and launch with the most basic features possible, for the least price possible. This is the approach of the software engineer who wants to thrive in technology and you should do everything you can to align yourself with those who think like that. Because they understand technology and they understand where the future is headed.
