The NeXT/Apple engineering culture clash

Fri, Mar 25, 2011


David Casseres writes the following in the wake of Bertrand Serlet leaving Apple:

Pretty soon he was standing up in front of seasoned Apple software engineers and lecturing us on how not to make mistakes when cutting and pasting code. I said at that time that I had never felt so thoroughly disrespected as an engineer in my entire career. The NeXT/Apple culture wars were at their height.

And whadya know, Serlet’s replacement, Craig Federighi, is also a NeXT transplant.

Casseres relays some more interesting Serlet anecdotes over here.
