Uncle Bob on Career

Your career is your responsibility.

Your career is your responsibility. It is not your employer’s responsibility to make sure you are marketable. It is not your employer’s responsibility to train you, or to send you to conferences, or to buy you books. These things are your responsibility. Woe to the software developer who entrusts his career to his employer.

An anthropologist was asking a primitive tribesman about arithmetic.
