writes with this chestnut from an article about the role of age in the high-tech workplace
: 'The shelf life of a software engineer today is no more than that of a cricketer — about 15 years,' says V R Ferose, MD of German software major SAP's India R&D Labs that has over 4,500 employees . 'The 20-year-old guys provide me more value than the 35-year-olds do.'"
The article features similar sentiments from Mukund Mohan, CEO of Microsoft's India-based startup initiative.
