3D Chart of Software Development Roles: Visualising Skill Attributes

This 3D scatter plot visualises various software development roles based on three key skill attributes:

  • Project Timeline (x-axis): Representing the spectrum from project start to project end.
  • Focus Orientation (y-axis): Spanning from people focused to technology focused roles.
  • Thinking Style (z-axis): Differentiating between operational thinking and strategic thinking.

Each marker represents a distinct role, with its position indicating the relative emphasis on each of these attributes. Use the chart to explore how different roles balance these skills. How one person in a 3D space could assume another role nearby in the space.

"Z" for Zero-Day Analyst. Software Development Roles: A to Z

As a Zero-Day Analyst, they specialise in identifying and mitigating zero-day vulnerabilities in software and systems. These vulnerabilities, unknown to vendors or developers, are critical targets for exploitation by malicious actors.

Personal Story: In my experience, most zero-day issues fall into one of two categories: The operating system has a vulnerability that requires an upgrade or patch to be applied ASAP. Did you know? Zero-day vulnerabilities are particularly dangerous because there are no patches or fixes available to protect against potential attacks, making them a significant threat.
