I love how you hit the nail in the head with this one.
When I was studying for my CS Associate's Degree, one of the things our teachers insisted on was to always talk a lot with our potential customers to deeply understand what they needed. What was the real problem. What were their worries. One teacher even told us that sometimes, we couldn't fix their problems with our tech... Sometimes, the problem wasn't that simple and our tech wouldn't help.
I didn't understand it a while later when I had my first real gig on the open.
Indeed, at first I chose the CS path to stay away from people (I'm a little bit shy), but I found something honestly better and more rewarding: helping people and making meaningful connections doing so.
I mean... It's pretty much the most straightforward way we can find real solutions.
Thank you! And thanks for sharing that!
