Hello! I'm a software engineer and community manager here at inxton. I'm probably working on a new feature or shooting a video for you...when I'm not in the office I ride on the wakeboard 🏄♂️ or I'm planning a trip somewhere🗺
During my studies never have I ever heard the word PLC.
But you’re a programmer, aren’t you? … Asked the project manager.
I am. I’ve just never heard about Ladder programming or Structured text. Like ever.
How come that this person is showing you the impressive programs she/he has built in their free time has never heard about something as common as a PLC?
PLC world is mostly hidden behind a “paywall”. You need to buy software, hardware, and probably book a training session too.
To build an app you need the phone you have and google “how to make an app”.
Let’s say you hire her/him.
It’s possible that she/he will be surprised how ancient PLC feels compared to the modern PC world.
A simple task may feel close to impossible.
It is frustrating.
What would you do if your new job required you to go to a post office instead of sending an email?
You would feel like you made a step back and that’s never a good sign.
PC programmers could feel this way too. They could do so much more but they’re limited.
Let them unleash their potential with a tool like Inxton. You as a manager will greatly benefit from it.
