Statistics guarantee that the majority of programmers have never worked on really large, mission-critical software. First, salary surveys consistently show that most programmers have less than ten years of experience. Once they reach that ten-year mark, many programmers move into management or just out of programming. Second, the histogram of project sizes is heavily weighted toward the smaller end of the scale. So, take a young population with relatively few opportunities to work on giant projects, and it’s no surprise that experience at that level is hard to find.
This is fascinating.
