Hope Is Not a Strategy

I’ve just found an interesting tweet about hiring “the right” developer. Companies try to avoid hiring “wrong” developers so strong, that they think it’s better not to hire a good developer than have a chance to get a bad one.

But it’s better to minimize risks by removing the cause of that risks. If it is possible for a junior developer to drop production, a senior will do it eventually.

Hope is not a strategy.

Removing paths to fail makes success inevitable.
