On Working for Bertrand Serlet

David Cásseres:

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.

Seems like ancient history now, but the NeXT/Apple engineering cultures did not mix well at first.
