8 signs of a great development environment

  1. At least one person playing the air-guitar or drums at any given time

    1. Free coffee and soda

    2. Little bit chatter from pairing, conversation, and collaboration

    3. Lots of headphones to drown out the chatter

    4. At least one book on everyone’s desk

    5. The majority of the desks are filled, aka everyone isn’t always in meetings

    6. You can play bingo with the words test, unit, mock, loosely coupled, automate, build, pairing, code review, and powershell (Okay, maybe I threw that last one in there)

    7. Employees ask to come in and work 12 hours on a Saturday for a Hackathon

Next Hackathon, May 9th. High hopes for lots of great things to come out of it.
