This article is a confirmation of what I'm seeing in almost any software developer: they tend to image themselves as a more accurate, more specialized expert.
They think they have to basically build a vertical skill asset.

But, isn't it strange in this market?
We build things that lasts months and then we rebuild them (and on, and on...).
What remains, is our ability to learn the new patterns/technologies and, based on our experience, make these new arrows for our bows.
Senior people should focus in building their horizontal soft-skills: communication, direction, leadership.

Thanks for your article James!
