So if some software engineer didn't consider the case of sensors sending
erroneous data to the system and also if the pilots didn't receive any
training for this new system then there's not much one could have done
with those manual flying skills in the heat of the moment.

But it says the flight control system can be overridden (it was in the case of the Lion Air aircraft on a flight the previous day apparently)
We obviously don't know all the details yet - it's going to be an interesting one to follow. I've been reading interesting papers on flight controls systems design recently & redundancy in both control system & inputs is a big part of it
EDIT: direct quote "The pilot will always be able to override the flight control law (MCAS) using electric trim or manual trim,"
