Where is all the software developer

I met a sales executive in a dinner. He told me he has been doing sales job for about four years, surprisingly, he was a programmer before he changed to sales line.

I ask him, what make him decided to give up programmer life? He told me, programmer life have to work till late night, is just to difficult for him. Yes, is true, not everyone can go through a programmer life.

Malaysia don't treat programmer (or software developer) well, low pay, long working hours, and always under pressure. There are a lot of fresh graduates work as a programmer every year, they need more training, but before they can go through the tough life, most of them had given out.

Obviously Malaysia is still lack of experience software developers.
