The O’Reilly website onlamp.com has a really interesting article out about what “corporate” projects can learn from open source dittos, I found the article really interesting and there are allot of recognition-points in there. Worth reading, and I immediately ordered the book which the article reefers to.
It all boils down to five important point, namely.
- Tell the truth all the time
- Trust the team
- Review everything, test everything
- All developers are created equal
- The fastest way through the project is to do it right
I know I will try to integrate more of the tips into my projects, and definitely try to stand up against the “management” more.
