“I swear by Babbage, the innovator, Jobs, Gates, Dell and Grove, and I take to witness all the CEOs , to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art. Too gay- omitted.
I will prescribe regimens for the good of my customers according to my ability and my judgment and never to overcharge anyone.
I will not give lethal consultations to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give the CFO an alibi to cause fraud.
But I will preserve the transparency of my life and my work in linkedin and audit entries.
I will not propose half bake IT solutions, even for customers in whom the business requirement is manifest;
I will leave this operation to be performed by the actual technology architects, specialists in this field.
In every company where I come I will enter only for the good of my customers, keeping myself far from all ignorance based ill-doing and all fiduciary seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with the boss’ staff, be they interns or executives.
All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and honour in nondisclosure agreements and beer sessions.
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my job, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the fate of Enron and Skilling be my lot.”
