Software Developers Day

Yesterday (March 2, 2005) I attended Software Developers Day in Jakarta. The event was organized by Aspiluki (Association of Software House in Indonesia). I arrived a little late, since I have to take a train from Bandung to Jakarta. I arrived at the venue just at the very end of pak Putu's presentation. He is from Departemen Perindustrian (Ministry of Industry). There were other representatives from the Government side.

After that there were representatives from multinational companies; Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Oracle, HP, and Sun. They were asked to tell the audience about their software roadmap and what can the developers expect from them. One of the insteresting questions was put by the moderator (Didik from Inixindo). He asked whether at one time or another the panelists have idea to tell their CEOs that they should bring work to Indonesia. The answer was dissapointing, in my opinion. I've got an impression that they don't believe the non-technical capabilities of Indonesian developers.

In the afternoon, well it was late afternoon since the whole thing was delayed for 1 hour, I gave a presentation on "Security Implementation in Mission Critical Applications." My presentation was basically on software security, or the lack of. (Presentation material will be posted in my presentation web site: budi.insan.co.id/presentations.) Enjoy ...

I've got an impression that they don't believe the non-technical capabilities of Indonesian developers.Non technical pak ? kalau secara technical bagaimana ya ? kok saya juga merasa sangsi kalau putra2 indonesia tercinta ini memiliki technical skill yang mumpuni .. Seperti yg saya alami begitu sulit mencari tenaga kerja programmer yang mumpuni ! hmmm

Kalau secara teknis, sudah mulai banyak programmer Indonesia yang mahir. Hanya, memang mereka sudah terpakai di berbagai tempat. Jadi dari segi kualitas, kita boleh bangga.

Akan tetapi dari kuantitas (jumlah) yang berkualitas ini, memang masih menjadi masalah. Banyak memang lulusan IT (perguruan tinggi, sekolah tinggi, training center). Namun yang banyak ini kualitasnya masih kurang.

Jadi jika anda kesulitan mencari technical skill yang mumpuni, itu karena anda kalah bersaing saja.

Nah, bagaimana kita bisa menghasilkan yang jago-jago dalam jumlah yang banyak?

ya mungkin saja pak ! kalah bersaing mencari programmer handal . Mungkin incentive yang perusahaan berikan tidak sesuai harapan mereka .
Gak heran banyak yg lari ke luar negeri mencari penghidupan lebih baik . Plus juga mencari pengalaman programming lebih mantap . Disana kan kita bekerja dengan programmer yang udah mature dengan segala macam tools dan ilmu yang mereka miliki. Intinya di Indonesia ,IMHO ,banyak perusahaan software tidak benar2 niat mengembangkan usahanya . Apalagi software house kecil2 seperti perusahaan saya . Meski projectnya gede , tapi pengembangan softwarenya masih awut-awutan .
Hmm..mungkin ini juga tantangan bagi saya .. taulah

Pak Budi,
menarik sekali presentasinya. Saya baru tahu bahwa Formal Methods termasuk Formal Verification dipakai juga di IT Security. Saya cuma melakukan Formal Verification pada Verilog dan VHDL models, tapi setelah membaca presntasi pak Budi jadi ingin mempelajari lebih dalam! It#s very interesting presentation, pak Budi!

hmm .. saya sendiri berpikiran begitu: "Computer programming is my hobby, but I don't want to be working as programmer if it is in Indo...". You might easily guess why. Actually, we have them a lot. But most of them don't really have good determination, differentiation and consistency... it's too "normal-distribution" ;-))
