Software Developers and Antifragility

“Antifragile” is the title of the new book by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, coming out September 2012. It’s about having uncapped upside while simultaneously¬†limiting your downside. In effect, this puts you in a position to benefit disproportionally from volatility in outcomes.

Software developers are antifragile.¬†Hard to imagine a skill more widely demanded across industries (robust), plus there’s always the possibility of being hired (for equity)¬†by a software startup (also antifragile entities) or being a key member in starting one.
