What I learned about networking from software developers.

Between projects like GÉANT, and following the mobile industry, I’ve been hanging around with a lot of software developers. Our work is superficially similar - we use computers, and keyboards, and tracking databases, and have meetings. But the similarities go deeper, and a lot of the tools and tactics they use have changed how I approach my own work. The Minimum Viable Product gets your work into the customer’s hands as early as possible. Monthly Sprints allow for quick, frequent course corrections. And we all have to learn how to divine the wishes of our customers. Here is what I’ve learned from them.
