Developers Reflect on Steve Jobs

  • “He gave developers a masterpiece to aspire to. No longer was it okay to ship something with bad design.” — Prashant Sridharan, vice president of Corensic
  • “His passion for simplicity, elegance, and beauty — even in the invisible — was and is an inspiration for all software developers.” — Grady Booch, co-creator of the Unified Modeling Language
  • “He showed us that building great software wasn’t enough; you also had to improve the lives of the user.” — Theo Schlossnagle, CEO of OmniTI
