'T-shaped' developers are the new normal

Stripping away the buzzwords, I'm highly entertained

As that's the way I, and most of my fellow South African devs, have always worked.

Although it should be more of a V than a T, i.e. it really helps to know a good deal about topics closely related to one's speciality. e.g. in my case it's the intersection of real-time and high-performance computing, but I can and will do GUI and database work if that helps get the product delivered.

It does make working in a mult-disciplinary team good fun, making problem-solving a collective exercise rather than a scrap about whose side of the wall has the root cause.
