As programmers both junior and seniors, we all know that coding is not routine nor repetitive. It’s actually Creative work and it require lots of thinking space. But “business people” or most friends over at the commercial department, do not think the same. They think it’s something that can be easily achieve. Like adding a feature set is a day or two kind of thing.
