Every. Single. Software developer. Must. Take. Note. YOU can go to jail for the code YOUR BOSS tells you to write.

I reference this in a talk on Development Matters. I'll be adding this update. Yikes! Thanks for pointing to this Ted.

I've been watching for this for a few years now. This may be the seed that finally triggers a union movement among developers. Maybe.

I’m all for accountability. I’m not sure this is the right way to go about it. (You really think a judge is qualified to decide code blame?)

Not by much. This really is/was only a matter of time. If not VW, then another firm down the line.

For some reason software developers have thought themselves above or immune somehow. IDK when courts have targeted developers either.

"Liang pleaded guilty ...and had cooperated with U.S. law enforcement officials..." - he needed a better lawyer. Just sayin.

Dunno. If his choice was to plead for two years or be tried and found guilty for fifteen or more? What would you advise?
