Erna Mahyuni doesn’t mince words in her column on The Malaysian Insider about the proposed Computing Professionals Bill.
The Computing Professionals Bill 2011 was drafted by clueless people. That is the only conclusion I can make after reading MOSTI’s press statement in response to the backlash from the local tech community, and what the Bill’s “champions” have to say.
For the record, I think the bill is too vague and misguided to make a difference and agree with the opinion of the tech community that it will do more harm than good. The stated goal of the Bill (to raise the quality of IT professionals and practitioners in Malaysia) can and should be achieved by different means like better SLAs and accountability for high value IT projects.
