Mechanical Sympathy - Learning from Racing

Formula 1 world champion once stated

“You don’t have to be an engineer to be a racing driver, but you do have to have Mechanical Sympathy.” 
– Jackie Stewart, racing driver


This fits so well with technology. What Jackie meant is that understanding how a car works make you a better driver. This is so much true for writing code mainly in today's cloud technology. You need to have a basic understanding of hardware to create a good software.
