Our Life is full of excitements and paradox is one of them since life has got many contradictions. Almost every day something happens against your expectation even if it doesn’t have any impact on your life. For example a well-known paradox of Kevin Systrom; he is the CEO and founder of Instagram. He will go down the history in our generation as one of the great stories in the Silicon Valley. He taught himself coding during his spare time. After acquiring the coding skills, he built Instagram on his spare time also. He later sold Instagram to Facebook for $1 Billion.
Systrom is one of the active users on a largely self-taught programmer website called Quora. Having built his own programming story, his considered among the successful self-learning programmers. Instead of his own effort benefiting him, he sold his program to other designers. Most of the programmers do a great job but their projects and benefiting other people who don’t have the knowledge on coding.
The programmer is receiving little money despite their hard work and the original idea. People who buy programs employ designers. An entry level position for designer earns around $80,000. They are earning good amount to innovate creativity of other people and in a few situations, the designers are adding little features to the original work.
So, therein lies the contradiction and the positive side that there are still good ideas out there with creative programmers who are still motivated to develop them into pots of gold that successful applications portend.
